  • Imaging of Acute Ankle and Foot Sprains. [Review]
    Radiol Clin North Am. 2023 Mar; 61(2):319-344.Beltran LS, Zuluaga N, … Bencardino JT
  • Ankle and foot injuries are very common injuries in the general population, and more so in athletes. MR imaging is the optimal modality to evaluate for ligamentous injuries of the ankle and associated conditions after ankle sprain. In this article, the authors discuss the epidemiology, biomechanics, normal anatomy, and pathology of the ankle as well as injuries of the hindfoot and midfoot that ar…
  • Imaging of Overuse Injuries of the Ankle and Foot in Sport and Work. [Review]
    Radiol Clin North Am. 2023 Mar; 61(2):307-318.Beekman KM, Kuijer PPFM, Maas M
  • Overuse injuries of the ankle and foot are common injuries both in sport and in a work-related context. After clinical assessment, imaging is key for early diagnosis. In this overview article, we focus on imaging techniques, protocols, and imaging findings of overuse injuries of the ankle and foot; we emphasize the important role of structured reporting; and we discuss clinical symptoms, epidemio…
  • The Effect of the Covid-19 Pandemic on the Epidemiology of Ankle Joint Injuries in Adults and Children. [Journal Article]
    Ortop Traumatol Rehabil. 2022 Dec 31; 24(6):363-373.Klepacki K, Tomczyk Ł, … Morasiewicz P
  • CONCLUSIONS: 1. Our study showed the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the epidemiology and treatment of ankle joint injuries. 2. The COVID-19 pandemic effected a decrease in the number of patients with ankle joint injuries, particularly pediatric and male patients with these injuries. 3. National lockdown measures had a considerable effect on lowering the numbers of pediatric patients with ankle joint injuries treated conservatively. 4. Importantly, the tendency can be noted among orthopedic surgeons and emergency room doctors to more readily qualify orthopedic patients for a trial of conservative treatment. This only prolongs the duration of treatment and time to the ultimate therapeutic surgery.
  • Epidemiology of more than 50,000 ankle fractures in the Swedish Fracture Register during a period of 10 years. [Journal Article]
    J Orthop Surg Res. 2023 Jan 31; 18(1):79.Rydberg EM, Wennergren D, … Möller M
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study presents the epidemiology of all AO/OTA types of ankle fractures. We have demonstrated that most ankle fractures are caused by a simple fall and occur during wintertime. Women are more commonly affected than men and are older at the time of injury. These findings indicate that age-related skeletal fragility, as well as an increasing risk of simple falls in the elderly, may be risk factors for ankle fractures. This study will contribute to the planning of primary prevention for ankle fractures.
  • The multi-ligament ankle fracture: Epidemiology, key anatomical findings and fixation strategies in unstable open injuries. [Journal Article]
    J Clin Orthop Trauma. 2023 Jan; 36:102086.Williams J, Davies M, … Ahluwalia R
  • CONCLUSIONS: A subset of up to 20% of open ankle fractures require supplementary fixation beyond anatomical restoration of the bony anatomy due to persistent ligamentous instability. They are associated with capsuloligamentous and syndesmotic disruption, more commonly affecting the medial structures. These rare injuries can be defined as multi-ligament ankle fractures. Surgeons should be aware of this subset and be able to recognise where supplementary stabilisation strategies are required.
  • [Effectiveness of new Pilon plate in treatment of type C Pilon fracture]. [Journal Article]
    Zhongguo Xiu Fu Chong Jian Wai Ke Za Zhi. 2023 Jan 15; 37(1):31-36.Yu J, Chen H, … Sun G
  • CONCLUSIONS: Compared with the traditional L-shaped plate, the new Pilon plate in the treatment of type C Pilon fracture has the advantages of high reduction quality, reliable fixation, less irritation to soft tissue, high fracture healing rate, and satisfactory functional recovery of ankle joint.
  • Soot-Embedded Extruded Talus Fracture After a 5-Story Fall: A Case Report. [Case Reports]
    JBJS Case Connect. 2023 Jan 01; 13(1)Varghese P, Lam A, … Kang KK
  • CONCLUSIONS: There is a lack of well-established guidelines regarding I&D of traumatic wounds contaminated with fine particulates. A review of potential debridement methods is discussed. Orthoapedic surgeons should be aware of hydrosurgical debridement as a potential treatment approach in these unique scenarios.
  • Baseball injuries in adolescent athletes with ADHD. [Journal Article]
    Front Sports Act Living. 2022; 4:1032558.Feldkamp JM, Stevens AR, … Hale EW
  • At the intersection of injury-prone sports such as baseball and conditions like ADHD that affect all aspects of life, there is a lack of research. This limits the availability of preventive care programs designed to target potential risks and promote a safe experience. In this retrospective cohort study, we assess the frequency of injury in youth baseball players with and without ADHD, along with…
