  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Management of high-energy foot and ankle injuries in the geriatric population.
  • From January 1989 through December 2010, a total of 494 elderly patients with 536 foot and ankle injuries were identified.
  • Within this group, 237 (48%) patients with 294 injuries were sustained as a result of a high-energy mechanism.
  • These mechanisms consisted of 170 motor vehicle accidents, 30 as a result of high (not ground level) energy falls, 2 from industrial accidents, and 35 classified as other, which included sports, blunt trauma, bicycle, airplane or boating accidents, crush injuries, and injuries resulting from a lawn mower.
  • The injuries produced were 17 metatarsal fractures, 9 Lisfranc injuries, 10 midfoot (navicular, cuneiform, or cuboid) fractures, 23 talus fractures, 63 calcaneal fractures, 73 unimalleolar, bimalleolar, or trimalleolar ankle fractures, 45 pilon fractures, and 3 pure dislocations of the foot or ankle.
  • Overall, 243 (83%) of these injuries underwent surgical fixation and data have shown that when surgery is used to manage high-energy injuries of the foot and ankle in the elderly individuals, the complications and outcomes are similar to those seen in younger patients.
  • Therefore, the decision for surgical intervention for high-energy injuries of the foot and ankle should be based primarily on the injury pattern and not solely on the age of the patient.

  • [Title] 'Injuries or Poisonings' associated with 'Post Traumatic Pain': Top Publications.
  • [Transliterated title]
  • Background: There are articles published each month which present 'Injury or Poisoning' for 'post traumatic pain'.
  • Finding such articles is important for researchers, clinicians, and patients.
  • However these articles are spread across thousands of journals, and there are many types of 'Injury or Poisoning'.
  • This makes searching and locating the relevant publications a challenge.
  • We have used BioMedLib's semantic search technology to address the issue, and gathered all the pertinent publications in this review article.
  • Methods: We categorized the publications we found into two groups.
  • We used the strength of textual-association to separate the groups.
  • In group one there are publications with the strongest evidence of association. We focused finding the most relevant publications pertinent to our goal, rather than combining them into a conclusion section. Such textual synthesis will be the focus of our next project.
  • Results: Group one includes 12 publications, and group two 2330 publications.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Do orthopaedic shoes improve local dynamic stability of gait? An observational study in patients with chronic foot and ankle injuries.
  • BACKGROUND: Complex foot and ankle fractures, such as calcaneum fractures or Lisfranc dislocations, are often associated with a poor outcome, especially in terms of gait capacity.
  • The aim of this study was to analyze changes in LDS induced by orthopaedic shoes in patients with persistent foot and ankle injuries.
  • They were treated for chronic post-traumatic disabilities following ankle and/or foot fractures in a Swiss rehabilitation clinic.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Footwear adaptation led to pain relief and to improved foot & ankle proprioception.
  • It is likely that that enhancement allows patients to better control foot placement.

  • [Title] Injuries in female dancers aged 8 to 16 years.
  • OBJECTIVE: To identify the types of injuries sustained by recreational dancers and to examine their association with age, joint range of motion, body structure, age at menarche, presence of anatomic anomalies, and physical burden (i.e., practice hours en pointe).
  • MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Dependent variables were 61 types of current injuries that were later classified into 4 major categories: knee injuries, foot and ankle tendinopathy, back injuries, and other injuries.
  • Independent variables were age, joint range of motion, body size and shape, age at menarche, anatomic anomalies, and dance discipline (e.g., hours of practice per week en pointe).
  • RESULTS: At least 1 previous injury had been sustained by 42.4% of the dancers.
  • The most common injuries involved the knee (40.4%), followed by other injuries (23.4%).
  • The relative frequency of back injuries and tendinopathy decreased with age, whereas knee injuries increased.
  • Types of injuries were significantly associated with ankle plantar flexion, hip external rotation, hip abduction, and knee flexion.
  • Multinomial regression analysis revealed only 3 predictive variables (with other as baseline), all for back injury: scoliosis, age, and hip external rotation.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Joint range of motion and scoliosis may signal the potential for future injury.

  • [Title] Incidence and significance of injuries to the foot and ankle in polytrauma patients--an analysis of the Trauma Registry of DGU.
  • BACKGROUND: Injuries to the foot and ankle are often missed or underestimated during the initial care for polytraumatized patients.
  • Nonetheless, injuries to the lower extremity exert significant influence on long-term outcome after discharge from the acute care facility.
  • Since the mortality of trauma decreased in the last decades, these injuries gain more effect on the overall outcome.
  • We analysed foot and ankle injury patterns, associated procedures and special characteristics of this population during early care.
  • METHODS: Multiply injured patients of the Trauma Registry of DGU (TR-DGU; Injury Severity Score, ISS > or = 16) with injuries to the foot and ankle (group F&A) were compared to the remaining TR-DGU population (group Non-F&A) for differences in injury characteristics, surgical treatment and early outcome.
  • RESULTS: Demographic data and injury severity were comparable between the groups.
  • The group F&A showed significantly more falls from a height above 3m and suicidal injuries.
  • Their overall injury severity to the extremities, especially to the regions different from the foot and ankle, was significantly higher compared to group Non-F&A.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our data enhance the need for a meticulous search for injuries to the foot and ankle in patients with falls, comparably light injuries to the trunk and head and especially in patients with multiple and severe injuries to the skeletal system.
  • Since 88.4% of patients with foot and ankle injuries are discharged alive, early appropriate care should be given to these injuries that significantly affect long-term outcome.

  • BACKGROUND: Jobs that necessitate prolonged standing and walking activities are commonly associated with worker's complaints of foot and ankle pain.
  • The objective of this study was to determine the relative contributions of work activity (time spent standing, walking, or sitting), floor surface characteristics, weight, BMI, age, foot biomechanics, and other demographic and medical history factors to the prevalence of foot and ankle disorders.
  • The main outcome variable was foot or ankle disorders defined by pain and a positive physical examination.
  • The independent variables included baseline demographics, medical history, ergonomic exposures, psychosocial factors, shoe characteristics and foot biomechanics.
  • RESULTS: Twenty-four percent of the cohort met the case definition of foot/ankle disorder with 10% defined as new cases.
  • Fifty-two percent had symptoms of foot/ankle.
  • An increased risk of presenting with foot/ankle disorders was associated with high metatarsal pressure on gait assessment, increased time spent walking, female gender, reported high job dissatisfaction, a history of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis or vascular disorder.
  • For the truck/forklift drivers, an increased number of times getting in and out of the vehicle was associated with a higher prevalence of ankle/foot problems.

  • [Title] Outcomes of IED foot and ankle blast injuries.
  • BACKGROUND: Improvements in protection and medical treatments have resulted in increasing numbers of modern-warfare casualties surviving with complex lower-extremity injuries.
  • To our knowledge, there has been no prior analysis of foot and ankle blast injuries as a result of improvised explosive devices (IEDs).
  • The aims of this study were to report the pattern of injury and determine which factors are associated with a poor clinical outcome.
  • METHODS: U.K. service personnel who had sustained lower leg injuries following an under-vehicle explosion from January 2006 to December 2008 were identified with the use of a prospective trauma registry.
  • Patient demographics, injury severity, the nature of the lower leg injury, and the type of clinical management were recorded.
  • RESULTS: Sixty-three U.K. service personnel (eighty-nine injured limbs) with lower leg injuries from an explosion were identified.
  • Fifty-one percent of the casualties sustained multisegmental injuries to the foot and ankle.
  • Twenty-six legs (29%) required amputation, with six of them amputated because of chronic pain eighteen months following injury.
  • Regression analysis revealed that hindfoot injuries, open fractures, and vascular injuries were independent predictors of amputation.
  • At the time of final follow-up, sixty-six (74%) of the injured limbs had persisting symptoms related to the injury, and only nine (14%) of the service members were fit to return to their preinjury duties.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates that foot and ankle injuries from IEDs are associated with a high amputation rate and frequently with a poor clinical outcome.

  • OBJECTIVE: To give a review and commentary on the treatment of acute foot and ankle injuries.
  • METHODS: Based on the treatment experience and recent literature, a commentary on acute foot and ankles injuries were given, included the basic and clinical research results, evaluation before operation, and treatment methods of the soft tissue and bone injuries.
  • RESULTS: The treatment of acute foot and ankle injuries is still a hot point in orthopaedic surgery.
  • The time delay between first debridement and injury within 24 hours does not increase the infection rate.
  • For the treatment of severe ankle fractures, attentions should be paid to the cartilage injury, and anatomic reduction, good realignment, and the congruity recovery are very important.
  • The treatment determination of calcaneal fractures depends on the fully understanding injury mechanisms, classifications, and treatment method.
  • Operation and fixation methods of Lisfranc injury depends on different injury types.
  • CONCLUSION: Acute foot and ankle injuries are common in clinical, to achieve a satisfactory result in evaluation and treatment, it is important to have a fully evaluation of the injury type, and choose best operation time and suitable treatment methods, as well as to fully understand the biomechanical characteristics of different regions.

  • BACKGROUND: Ankle and foot injuries are common in professional soccer players, but the relation among diagnosis, severity and time lost from play is not well known.
  • OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship among diagnosis, injury severity and time lost to play of professional soccer players with severe ankle and foot injuries with reviewing the recent literature.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Collected data of 66 players with severe ankle and foot injuries were included in the study.
  • Type of injury, diagnosis, treatment, injury severity and finally, time lost from play were evaluated from the medical records.
  • Injury severity ('severe' if >28 days, 'moderate' if between 8 and 28 days) and time lost from play were calculated from medical records and by telephone interviews with the players.
  • RESULTS: Most injuries (n=20, 32%) occurred during player-to-player contact.
  • The most common diagnosis was ankle sprain (30.3%) with anterior talofibular ligament injury.
  • Most (55%) hindfoot injuries were Achilles tendinopathy with or without rupture.
  • The mean time lost from play for players with severe foot and ankle injuries was 61 days (range 21-240 days); after Achilles tendon ruptures, the mean time lost was 180 days.
  • Injury severity was severe (>28 days lost from play) in 64% patients and moderate (8-28 days lost from play) in 36% patients.
  • CONCLUSION: Time lost to play can dramatically increase by the presence of severe ankle and foot injuries.
  • Serious ankle and foot injuries in this study resulted in players being out of professional competition for about 2 months.

  • [Title] Can patterns of segmental injuries of the foot and ankle predict amputation and disability?
  • The purpose of the study was to determine the risk of digital or distal segmental amputation and permanent unemployment in patients with these injury patterns.
  • A retrospective chart review of 23 patients with multiple, ipsilateral injuries of the foot and ankle was performed.
  • Amputations occurred in five patients (21.7%) and were most common in those with three-level injuries.
  • Odds ratios showed that patients with an amputation were 9.75 times more likely to have a three-level injury than a two-level injury.
  • It was concluded that patients with segmental foot and ankle injuries are at risk for amputation of the distal portion of the involved extremity and inability to return to their preinjury employment level (disability).

  • BACKGROUND: The relationship between psychiatric disorders and musculoskeletal injuries is interesting but has not been investigated in depth.
  • Another cohort-based case-control study was designed, and one sex-matched and age-matched (1:1) control group randomly selected from the population without any prevalent psychiatric disorder in 2000 and incident psychiatric disorder in 2001-2005 was used for comparison.
  • RESULTS: 64,662 Taiwanese people with any prevalent psychiatric disorder were enrolled in this study in 2000.
  • The 6-year cumulative incidences of orthopedic injuries were 13.61/10,000 for femoral neck/femur fracture and 4.64/10,000, 3.40/10,000, 3.25/10,000, and 3.09/10,000 for radius/ulna or hand fracture, tibia/fibula or patella fracture, ankle or foot fracture, and humeral fracture, respectively.
  • Compared with the control group, this Taiwanese population with prevalent psychiatric disorders had fewer incidences of all orthopedic injuries during the 6 years since 2000, and their cumulative incidence ratios ranged from 0.04 to 0.4 for the different injury sites.
  • CONCLUSION: Subjects with prevalent psychiatric disorders had fewer occurrences of orthopedic injuries than the general population.

  • BACKGROUND: The reverse sural artery fasciocutaneous flap is a versatile soft tissue coverage procedure for traumatic soft tissue defects of the distal tibia, ankle, and foot.
  • War-related blast injuries represent a unique injury mechanism.
  • There are no reports on use of this reconstructive flap in treating highly contaminated war-related musculoskeletal trauma of the foot and ankle.
  • The current study presents results using this soft tissue coverage procedure in a subacute fashion to treat a population of war-related blast injuries.
  • All injuries occurred between 2003 and 2008 as a result of severe war-related blast injuries.
  • RESULTS: All ten patients sustained Gustilo Type IIIB open fractures within the zones of injuries secondary to high energy blasts.
  • Average time to flap coverage was 37 (range, 18 to 112) days post-injury.
  • CONCLUSION: In appropriately selected patients with significant open bony and soft tissue trauma to the foot and ankle, the reverse sural artery fasciocutaneous flap should be considered as a viable first option for soft tissue coverage, even in cases of subacute coverage.

  • We retrospectively reviewed radiographic studies of all patients over a period of 18 months who simultaneously had ankle and foot plain radiographs performed for acute complaints limited to the ankle alone.
  • Of the 243 patients who met our inclusion criteria, 55 patients had fractures, 46 in or near the ankle joint, and nine which were located at the base of the fifth metatarsal bone.
  • No fractures or dislocations were noted elsewhere in the foot.
  • All of the fifth metatarsal fractures were evident on adequately performed ankle series.
  • Our findings suggest that films of the foot are not necessary when trauma is limited to the ankle and when an appropriately performed ankle series has been completed.

  • Soft-tissue injuries of the foot and ankle can vary from crushing to penetrating mechanisms.
  • Degloving injuries of the lower extremity are the result of an entrapment between a fixed surface and a moving object.
  • These injuries pose significant morbidity and potential complications (eg, infection) to the patient if prompt wound coverage is not initiated.
  • The authors present a case of an extensive degloving injury to the foot, ankle, and lower leg from a forklift accident.

  • [Title] Comparison of different outcome instruments following foot and ankle trauma.
  • BACKGROUND: Identifying optimal treatment strategies in patients with traumatic foot and ankle injuries has been hampered by the use of multiple available outcome measures with unproven reliability and validity.
  • This prospective observational study aimed to measure the correlation between six functional outcome measures in patients with traumatic foot and ankle injuries.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients 18 years of age or older with a traumatic foot or ankle injury completed the Short Form-12 (SF-12), Short Musculoskeletal Functional Assessment (SMFA), Foot Function Index (FFI), Foot and Ankle Ability Measure (FAAM), American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS), Foot and Ankle Questionnaire and American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) Ankle-Hindfoot Scale at a single followup visit.
  • The strongest correlations were found between the SMFA, FFI, FAAM and AAOS Foot and Ankle Questionnaire.
  • CONCLUSION: High correlations between scores on six commonly used functional outcome instruments suggest it is likely unnecessary to use more than one instrument when examining functional outcome in patients with traumatic foot and ankle injuries.

  • [Title] The mangled foot and ankle: results from a 2-year prospective study.
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine the outcome of the mangled foot and ankle undergoing limb salvage surgery that required free tissue flaps for wound closure compared with a similar patient foot and ankle injury group that underwent early below knee amputation (BKA).
  • One hundred seventy-four open severely injured hindfoot or ankle injuries (116 had salvage; 58 had a BKA).
  • Secondary outcomes included walking speed, number of rehospitalizations for injury-related complications, time to full weight-bearing, the visual analog pain scale, and return to work at 2 years.
  • RESULTS: When compared to patients treated with standard BKA, salvage patients who required free flaps and/or ankle arthrodesis had significantly worse 2-year outcomes.
  • CONCLUSIONS: : Patients with severe foot and ankle injuries who require free tissue transfer or ankle fusion have SIP outcomes that are significantly worse than BKA with typical skin flap design closure.
