Radiographic Identification of the Primary Lateral Ankle Structures

AJSM 2014

Lateral ankle ligament injuries rank among the most frequently observed athletic injuries, requiring repair or reconstruction when indicated. However, there is a lack of quantitative data detailing the ligament attachment sites on standard radiographic views. The purpose of this study was to quantitatively describe the anatomic attachment sites of the anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL), […]

The Ligament Anatomy of the Deltoid Complex of the Ankle: A Qualitative and Quantitative Anatomical Study

JOURNAL OF BONE AND JOINT SURGERY 2014

The deltoid ligament has both superficial and deep layers, consiting of up to six ligamentous bands. The prevalence of the individual bands are variable with no consensus as to which bands are constant or variable. This study analyzes the variance in the deltoid anatomy through quantified distance to relevant […]

Radiographic Evaluation of Plantar Plate Injury: An In Vitro Biomechanical Study

FOOT AND ANKLE INTERNATIONAL 2013

The term turf toe has been generally applied to athletic dorsiflexion injuries of the hallux metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint. However, the typical mechanism of turf toe injuries involves the delivery of an axial load to a foot, creating a hyperextension injury to the plantar plate complex. This study analyzes the grading levels of evaluating […]

Anatomic Suture Anchor Versus the Brostrom Technique for Anterior Talofibular Ligament Repair

AJSM 2012

This manuscript was co-written with our foot and ankle team to define the best manner to perform a lateral ankle ligament reconstruction.  In this study, we attempted to define whether a suture anchor at the fibula or talus best restores the native strength of the anterior talofibular ligament.  We found that both a standard […]
