Contribution of the medial malleolus to tibiotalar joint contact characteristics

By |2020-07-27T16:51:11+00:00February 1st, 2015|

Publication: Foot & Ankle Specialist Date: February 2015 Authors: Lareau CR1, Bariteau JT2, Paller DJ2, Koruprolu SC2, DiGiovanni CW2 Link to Full Text Abstract BACKGROUND: Isolated medial malleolus fractures are typically treated operatively to minimize the potential for articular incongruity, instability, nonunion, and posttraumatic arthritis. The literature, however, has not clearly demonstrated inferior outcomes with [...]

Biomechanical Comparison of an Open vs Arthroscopic Approach for Lateral Ankle Instability

By |2020-07-27T16:49:17+00:00August 1st, 2014|

Publication: Foot & Ankle International Date: August 2014 Authors: Drakos MC, Behrens SB, Paller D, Murphy C, DiGiovanni CW Link to Full Text Abstract BACKGROUND: The current clinical standard for the surgical treatment of ankle instability remains the open modified Broström procedure. Modern advents in arthroscopic technology have allowed physicians to perform certain foot and ankle procedures [...]

A biomechanical evaluation of locked plating for distal fibula fractures in an osteoporotic sawbone model

By |2020-07-27T13:22:50+00:00March 1st, 2014|

Publication: Foot & Ankle Surgery Date: March 2014 Authors: Bariteau JT, Fantry A, Blankenhorn B, Lareau C, Paller D, Digiovanni CW Link to Full Text Abstract BACKGROUND: Supination external rotation (SER) injuries are commonly fixed with a one third tubular neutralization plate. This study investigated if a combination locked plate with additional fixation options was [...]

Proximity of arthroscopic ankle stabilization procedures to surrounding structures: an anatomic study

By |2020-07-21T17:51:03+00:00June 1st, 2013|

Publication: Arthroscopy: The Journal of Arthroscopic and Related Surgery Date: June 2013 Authors: Drakos M, Behrens SB, Mulcahey MK, Paller D, Hoffman E, DiGiovanni CW Link to Full Text Abstract PURPOSE: To examine the anatomy of the lateral ankle after arthroscopic repair of the lateral ligament complex (anterior talofibular ligament [ATFL] and calcaneofibular ligament [CFL]) [...]

Biomechanical evaluation of mini-fragment hardware for supination external rotation fractures of the distal fibula

By |2020-07-17T15:10:35+00:00April 1st, 2013|

Publication: Foot & Ankle Specialist Date: April 2013 Authors: Bariteau JT, Blankenhorn BD, Lareau CR, Paller DJ, DiGiovanni CW Link to Full Text Abstract BACKGROUND: Supination external rotation distal fibula fractures are common, requiring fixation when associated with talar displacement. Subcutaneous distal fibula hardware may become painful, necessitating operative removal. We hypothesize that mini-fragment and [...]

Biomechanical analysis of Brostrom versus Brostrom-Gould lateral ankle instability repairs

By |2020-07-27T16:57:41+00:00April 1st, 2013|

Publication: Foot & Ankle International Date: April 2013 Authors: Behrens SB, Drakos M, Lee BJ, Paller D, Hoffman E, Koruprolu S, DiGiovanni CW Link to Full Text Abstract BACKGROUND: The traditional Brostrom repair and the modified Brostrom-Gould repair are 2 historically reliable procedures used to address lateral ankle instability. The purpose of this study was [...]

Accuracy of plain radiographs versus 3D analysis of ankle stress test.

By |2020-07-17T14:08:38+00:00October 1st, 2011|

Publication: Foot & Ankle International Date: October 2011 Authors: Hoffman E, Paller D, Koruprolu S, Drakos M, Behrens S, Crisco J, DiGiovanni C Link to Full Text Abstract BACKGROUND: Radiographic stress testing using both the anterior drawer (AD) and talar tilt (TT) technique is a widely accepted means of assessing ankle instability. The purpose of this study [...]
