Minimally Invasive Achilles Repair Avoids Nerve Injury
Background: Minimally invasive techniques for Achilles tendon repair are increasing due to reports of similar rerupture rates using open and percutaneous methods. The goal of this study was to investigate quantitatively the relationship and risk of injury to the sural nerve during Achilles tendon repair when using the Percutaneous Achilles Repair System(PARS) (Arthrex®, Naples, FL), by recording the distance between the passed needles and the sural nerve as well identifying any direct violation of the nerve with needle passage or nerve entrapment within the suture after the jig was removed.
Identifying Intra-Articular Pathology with Ankle Fractures
The purpose of this study is to assess the prevalence of intra-articular findings with ankle arthroscopy in patients undergoing operative fixation for ankle fractures
