  • Arthroscopic Ankle Arthrodesis After Tibial Pilon Open Reduction Internal Fixation
    Foot & ankle specialist, 2011
    Co-Authors: Thomas G. Harris, David Lee

    Abstract:

    Ankle Arthrodesis is an essential tool in the foot and Ankle surgeon’s armamentarium. Despite the evolving technology and ongoing research in Ankle arthroplasty, Arthrodesis continues to be a proven and safe option for the majority of patients with Ankle arthritis refractory to conservative management. Here, the authors present their technique of an arthroscopic Ankle Arthrodesis specifically in the setting of a previous open-reduction internal fixation (ORIF) for a tibia plafond type fracture. They have found this to be a reliable technique to achieve a solid Ankle Arthrodesis while minimizing soft-tissue trauma and dissection in an already compromised soft-tissue envelope.

  • outcomes of total Ankle replacement arthroscopic Ankle Arthrodesis and open Ankle Arthrodesis for isolated non deformed end stage Ankle arthritis
    Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery American Volume, 2019
    Co-Authors: Andrea Veljkovic, Mark Glazebrook, K. Wing, Murray J. Penner, Timothy R Daniels, Peter Dryden, A. Younger

    Abstract:

    Background:End-stage Ankle arthritis is a disabling condition that has a similar effect on morbidity, pain, and loss of function to hip arthritis. We compared clinical outcomes of total Ankle replacement (TAR) involving the HINTEGRA prosthesis (Integra LifeSciences), arthroscopic Ankle Arthrodesis (

  • Arthroscopic Versus Open Ankle Arthrodesis: A Multicenter Comparative Case Series
    The Journal of bone and joint surgery. American volume, 2013
    Co-Authors: David Townshend, Mark Glazebrook, A. Younger, Matthew Di Silvestro, Fabian Krause, Murray J. Penner, K. Wing

    Abstract:

    Background: Ankle Arthrodesis results in measurable improvements in terms of pain and function in patients with end-stage Ankle arthritis. Arthroscopic Ankle Arthrodesis has gained increasing popularity, with reports of shorter hospital stays, shorter time to solid fusion, and equivalent union rates when compared with open Arthrodesis. However, there remains a lack of high-quality prospective data.

    Methods: We evaluated the results of open and arthroscopic Ankle Arthrodesis in a comparative case series of patients who were managed at two institutions and followed for two years. The primary outcome was the Ankle Osteoarthritis Scale score, and secondary outcomes included the Short Form-36 physical and mental component scores, the length of hospital stay, and radiographic alignment. There were thirty patients in each group.

    Results: Both groups showed significant improvement in the Ankle Osteoarthritis Scale score and the Short Form-36 physical component score at one and two years. There was significantly greater improvement in the Ankle Osteoarthritis Scale score at one year and two years and shorter hospital stay in the arthroscopic Arthrodesis group. Complications, surgical time, and radiographic alignment were similar between the two groups.

    Conclusions: Open and arthroscopic Ankle Arthrodesis were associated with significant improvement in terms of pain and function as measured with the Ankle Osteoarthritis Scale score. Arthroscopic Arthrodesis resulted in a shorter hospital stay and showed better outcomes at one and two years.

    Level of Evidence: Therapeutic Level III. See Instructions for Authors for a complete description of levels of evidence.

  • ARTHROSCOPIC VERSUS OPEN Ankle Arthrodesis: A MULTICENTRE PROSPECTIVE CLINICAL OUTCOME STUDY
    , 2012
    Co-Authors: David Townshend, M. Penner, A. Younger, M. Glazebrook, K. Wing

    Abstract:

    Background Ankle Arthrodesis results in significantly improved pain and function for patients with end-stage Ankle arthritis. Arthroscopic Ankle Arthrodesis has gained increasing popularity with reports of shorter hospital stays, time to union and equivalent union rates to open Arthrodesis . However, there remains a lack of good quality prospective data. Methods We report a prospective comparative clinical study comparing open and arthroscopic Ankle Arthrodesis at two institutions with two-year follow-up. The primary outcome was the Ankle Osteoarthritis Scale and secondary outcomes included the SF-36, hospital stay and radiographic alignment. A power calculation was performed. There were 30 patients in each group. Results Both groups showed a significant improvement in AOS and physical component score (PCS) of the SF-36 at one and two years. There was a significantly greater improvement in AOS scores at one year and two years and shorter hospital stay in the arthroscopic group. There was no significant difference in complications, surgical time or radiographic alignment. Conclusions Open and Arthroscopic Ankle Arthrodesis demonstrate a significant improvement in pain and function as measured by the AOS. Arthroscopic Arthrodesis showed improved outcomes at one and two years and a shorter hospital stay.
