According to a company press release, the system was developed by four top foot and ankle surgeons and has been used successfully in more than 200 procedures since its initial clinical use more than 1 year ago. In that time, instrumentation updates and enhanced surgeon training have been introduced to further improve quality, patient safety and procedural efficiency.
A study presented as a poster at the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons Annual Scientific Conference found a significantly elevated risk of limb loss following transmetatarsal amputation (TMA) in patients with peripheral vascular disease (PVD).
The aim of this study was to investigate clinical and radiographic outcomes in patients 50 years and younger vs patients older than 50 years undergoing total ankle replacement.
Researchers performed a randomized controlled trial of 52 athletes with posterior ankle impingement syndrome. Overall, 26 athletes underwent open excision of the os trigonum and 26 athletes underwent endoscopic incision.
Overpronation of the foot is not an injury itself but if you over pronate then you may be more susceptible to a number of sports injuries. It is often recognised as a flattening or rolling in of the foot but it is not quite as simple as that as the timing of when the foot rolls in is also important.
