• reconstructive
  • The subtalar joint (STJ) arthrodesis is a well-documented procedure in elective reconstructive hindfoot surgery, for pain relief in cases of subtalar joint arthrosis and occasionally in the treatment of highly comminuted traumatic fractures. (podiatrytoday.com)
  • joints
  • There are 26 different bones in each foot, held together by 33 joints and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments (in each foot). (soup.io)
  • transfers
  • Procedures may include ligament and muscle lengthening, removal of the inflamed tendon lining, tendon transfers, cutting and realigning bones , placement of implants to realign the foot and joint fusions. (hatenablog.com)
  • lateral
  • When it comes to the posterior to anterior subtalar joint screw placement (aka the "bottom-up approach"), one can generally perform this technique with the patient either in a lateral or supine position. (podiatrytoday.com)
  • The lateral structures at risk include the peroneal tendons and the sural nerve. (podiatrytoday.com)
  • pronation
  • Tendon transfer, which is a procedure to re-attach a tendon to another area of bone, may also be used to reduce pronation and improve foot function. (soup.io)
  • foot
  • At this stage, the foot?s still going to be flexible, although it will likely have flattened somewhat due to the lack of support from the posterior tibial tendon. (hatenablog.com)
  • foot (the one without the complaining tendon) off the ground, standing only on your problem foot. (hatenablog.com)
  • Your podiatrist can recommend several orthotic aids and inserts to strengthen the tendons of your foot. (soup.io)
  • Patients
  • This treatment is especially attractive for patients who are elderly, who place low demands on the tendon, and who may have underlying medical problems that preclude operative intervention. (hatenablog.com)
  • placement
  • In regard to the anterior to posterior subtalar joint screw placement (aka the "top-down approach"), this technique is generally easier if the patient is supine and there is one surgeon who does not need lifting help for the leg. (podiatrytoday.com)
  • work
  • The most important function of the PT tendon is to work in synergy with the peroneus longus to stabilize the midtarsal joint (MTJ). (hatenablog.com)
  • joint
  • One can readily view the inferior aspect of the talar head and follow the plantar joint line posterior to the middle facet of the subtalar joint. (podiatrytoday.com)
