  • In the acute stage of gout, the hallux is most commonly involved followed by the mediotarsal joints and the Achilles tendons. Diagnosis of gout is established when typical monosodium urate crystals c…

  • Trichard T, Remy F, … Migaud H
  • CONCLUSIONS: This long-term follow-up with two successive assessments using the same evaluation criteria did not demonstrated the late degradation of function expected after ankle fusion. It did show however the presence of undeniable radiographic degradation of the subtalar joint but with little or no severe clinical expression at a minimal follow-up of 19 years. There was no need for complementary fusion between 4 and 23 years follow-up.
  • [Tibio-talar arthrodesis: long term influence on the foot]. [Journal Article]

  • Bertrand M, Charissoux JL, … Arnaud JP
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our results are similar to those reported in the literature. We had 4 cases of nonunion in patients with risk factors previously discussed in the literature.Arthrodesis remains a useful method for treating talocrural osteoarthritis, providing good long-term results. The position of the fixation should be 90 degrees in the sagittal plane and 0 degrees to 5 degrees valgus in the frontal plane.
  • [Stretching the triceps surae muscle after 40 degrees C warming in patients with cerebral palsy]. [Journal Article]
  • RCRev Chir Orthop Reparatrice Appar Mot 2000; 86(7):712-7
  • Lespargot A, Robert M, Khouri N
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our findings demonstrate that when the conditions allowing prolonged stretching of the triceps surae are present, prior warming at 40 degrees C for 10 minutes leads to an improvement in muscle lengthening in all patients, even in those for whom prior treatment had been unsuccessful without warming. This observation would indicate that the mechanisms allowing greater lengthening are present in all patients with cerebral palsy but that they cannot be triggered due to abnormal muscle viscosity related to distal vasomotor disorders frequently observed in this condition. Further research is needed to detail this point.
  • [Synostosis and tarsal coalitions in children. A study of 68 cases in 47 patients]. [Journal Article]
  • RCRev Chir Orthop Reparatrice Appar Mot 1994; 80(3):252-60
  • Rouvreau P, Pouliquen JC, … de Cerqueira Daltro G
  • CONCLUSIONS: The authors believe that tarsal coalitions have to be recognized based on a history of repeated ankle sprains or subtalar pain. Pain radiographs are diagnostic in most cases. CT scans and MRI are useful when radiographs are negative, especially in young children, or for talocalcaneal coalitions. The authors believe that the "the too long anterior process'' of the calcaneum in calcaneonavicular coalition has the same embryologic origin. Operative treatment is suitable, when tarsal coalitions are symptomatic or after failure of conservative treatment. Resection gives good results with calcaneonavicular coalitions and selected talocalcaneal coalitions. The mediotarsal and subtalar arthrodesis is suitable in spastic flat foot, or when the bony-bridge is too big, or when the involved joint presents degenerative changes in these cases, the MRI is very useful to select patient for resection or for arthrodesis.Evocative history and plain radiographs are diagnostic of most tarsal-coalitions. Modern imagery is useful for difficult diagnostics, for young children, or for evaluation of a joint before resection or arthrodesis. Resection is a good treatment for calcaneonavicular coalitions and gives good results for talocalcaneal coalitions in selected patients.
