BACKGROUND: It has been previously demonstrated that radiographic severity of arthritis predicts outcome following knee replacement. In certain circumstances, patients may undergo arthroplasty without severe radiographic disease. An example may be the patient with significant chondral damage unsuccessfully treated with arthroscopy. This patient may proceed to joint replacement when their radiographs would not normally merit such intervention. We investigated whether these findings were also applicable to total ankle replacements (TARs)...

The incidence of revision of total ankle replacement prostheses remains unclear. We undertook a systematic review to identify the material relating to the incidence of revision after implantation of the Salto(®) mobile version and Salto Talaris™ total ankle prostheses. Studies were eligible for inclusion only if they had involved primary total ankle replacement with these prostheses and had included the incidence of revision. Eight studies involving 1,209 Salto(®) mobile version prostheses, with a weighted mean follow-up period of 55...

BACKGROUND: The Scandinavian Total Ankle Replacement (STAR) has been used widely in Europe and more recently in the United States. We studied the results of the single-coated and the double-coated STAR with long-term follow-up. METHODS: All STARs (n = 324) used in Sweden (first implanted in 1993) were included. Prosthetic survival was estimated according to Kaplan-Meier. RESULTS: The 14-year survival of the single-coated STAR was 0.47 (95% confidence interval [CI], 0...

BACKGROUND: The deep peroneal nerve innervates muscles of the anterior leg compartment and the dorsum of the foot, and also receives sensation from the first interdigital cleft of the foot. Along its course in lower part of the leg, this nerve is very close to the anterolateral surface of the tibia and might be vulnerable to injury in fractures of the tibia or during surgery. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to clarify the relationship between the deep peroneal nerve and anterolateral surface of tibia...

BACKGROUND: Wound healing problems of the anterior ankle incision are among the most common complications after total ankle arthroplasty, possibly resulting in exposure of the prostheses and infection. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) in decreasing the rate of wound healing problems after total ankle arthroplasty. METHODS: This is a retrospective cohort study including consecutive patients who underwent total ankle arthroplasty by a single surgeon at a single institution between 2009 and 2013...

BACKGROUND: Infections in total ankle arthroplasty are a serious complication, about which there is little information in the current literature. METHODS: This is a retrospective review of infected total ankle arthroplasty at one institution from 1995 to 2012. Risk factors were compared between patients with infected total ankle arthroplasty and age- and sex-matched patients who did not have infection (control patients) within the same time period. RESULTS: 966 patients with total ankle arthroplasty were reviewed, and 29 cases of infected total ankle arthroplasty (3...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this investigation was to analyze a nationally representative admissions database to evaluate the effect of diabetes mellitus on the rate of perioperative complications and hospitalization outcomes after ankle arthrodesis (AAD) and total ankle arthroplasty (TAA). METHODS: Using the Nationwide Inpatient Sample database, 12 122 patients who underwent AAD and 2973 patients who underwent TAA were identified from 2002 to 2011 based on ICD-9 procedure codes...

BACKGROUND: Both total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) and ankle arthrodesis are options for the treatment of ankle arthritis and have been shown to improve gait postoperatively. Little is known about the postoperative performance of these patients on uneven surfaces. METHODS: Between 2010 and 2013, 77 consecutive patients were enrolled in a prospective study and completed 12 months of follow-up. Patients received either a TAA (61 patients) or an ankle arthrodesis (16 patients)...

BACKGROUND: The published long-term follow-up of modern total ankle arthroplasty is limited. We report results after a minimum of 10-year follow-up in a cohort of patients who underwent the Scandinavian Total Ankle Replacement (STAR™) in the United States. METHODS: Between 1998 and 2003, 18 patients underwent total ankle arthroplasty for end-stage ankle degeneration and were available for follow-up at a minimum of 10 years postoperatively out of a consecutive series of 41 patients...

Capsular contracture is one of the most common complications resulting from implants placed during mammoplasty and rhinoplasty, and there is no definitive solution or a method for preventing it. Recent reports suggest that botulinum toxin A (BoTA) is effective at reducing keloid scars clinically. Peri-implant capsules are histologically similar to keloid scars and hypertrophic scars. Therefore, we hypothesized that BoTA may reduce peri-implant capsule formation.To test our hypothesis, we divided 24 male Sprague-Dawley rats into an experiment group and a control group...
