Lack of enantiomeric influence on the brain cytoprotective effect of ibuprofen and flurbiprofen
Abstract R(−) enantiomers of the 2-arylpropionic acid derivatives ibuprofen and flurbiprofen weakly inhibit cyclooxygenase (COX) activity. However, a possible cytoprotective effect has been proposed. The aim of the study is to investigate the possible mechanism of this effect. An in vitro hypoxia–reoxygenation model in rat brain slices was used (n = 6 rats per group). After reoxygenation, we measured LDH efflux (neuronal death), brain prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) concentration, interleukins (IL)-1β and 10, oxidative and nitrosative stress (lipid peroxides, glutathione, 3-nitrotyrosine, and nitrites/nitrat...

Arthroscopically Assisted Treatment of Ankle Injuries
Ankle arthroscopy is a valuable tool in the treatment of certain intra-articular fractures involving the ankle, as it provides the ability to address osteochondral injury and aids in the direct visualization for joint reduction through minimal intervention. It can sometimes be complimented by a more minimally invasive approach to fracture reduction and internal fixation. It should be noted that to perform arthroscopically assisted minimally invasive fracture approaches, the surgeon must have significant experience with traditional open techniques.

Practical Aspects of Foot and Ankle Arthroscopy
Arthroscopy of the foot and ankle, although sometimes technically challenging, is a useful tool for the foot and ankle surgeon. Burman in 1931 was the first to attempt arthoscopy of the ankle joint and surmised that it was not a suitable joint for arthroscopy because of its narrow intra-articular space. With the development of smaller-diameter arthroscopes and improvements in joint distraction techniques, Watanabe was the first to present a series of 28 ankle arthroscopes in 1972. At present, arthroscopy is used not only to evaluate and treat intra-articular abnormalities but also for endoscopic and tendoscopic procedures.

The effectiveness of manual stretching in the treatment of plantar heel pain: a systematic review
Conclusions: There were too few studies to assess whether stretching is effective compared to control or other interventions, for either pain or function. However, there is some evidence that plantar fascia stretching may be more effective than Achilles tendon stretching alone in the short-term. Appropriately powered randomised controlled trials, utilizing validated outcome measures, blinded assessors and long-term follow up are needed to assess the efficacy of stretching.

Changes in multi-segment foot biomechanics with a heat-mouldable semi-custom foot orthotic device
Conclusions: A semi-custom moulded orthotic does not control rearfoot, shank, or arch deformation but does, however, reduce plantar fascia strain compared to walking without an orthoses. Heat-moulding the orthotic device does not have a measurable effect on any biomechanical variables compared to the non-moulded condition. These data may, in part, help explain the clinical efficacy of orthotic devices.

Small Joint Arthroscopy of the Foot
The arthroscopic approach to small joints of the foot has made many advances in recent years, which can be directly related to the improvement of the surgical equipment. This improvement has led to more indications for the use of arthroscopy as well as minimizing the complications. Several articles recently have presented experiences in arthroscopic surgery in the small joints of the foot; however, its use is still relatively limited. Approaches to small joints of the foot involve the first metatarsophalangeal joint, tarsometatarsal joint, and Chopart joint, as well as the interphalangeal joint to the great toe and lesser toes.

Foot health needs in people with systemic sclerosis: an audit of foot health care provision
Abstract The vascular and cutaneous alterations evident in systemic sclerosis/scleroderma (SSc) place the foot at risk of ulceration. The UK Podiatry Rheumatic Care Association (PRCA)/Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Alliance standards of care recommend that all people with SSc should receive at least basic information about their foot health, and that those with foot problems should have access to self-management advice and care where needed. The aim of this study was to evaluate foot health services offered in Leeds (UK) for people with SSc, against nationally agreed standards of care. Ninety-one consecutive ...

Quantification and Perception of On-call Podiatric Surgical Resident Workload
Abstract: The general assumption inherent to the design of podiatric surgical residency programs is that all residents will have comparable experiences in terms of patient care interactions and workload throughout their training. Despite this, there is usually the perception that certain residents consistently have greater or smaller workloads when on-call and are considered “black clouds” or “white clouds,” respectively. During a prospective investigational period of 1 year, on-call podiatric residents at a level 1 trauma center recorded their workload on a nightly basis in terms of three variables: pages/telephon...

Soft Tissue Pathology of the Ankle
Derangements of the soft tissues within the ankle joint are associated with a wide variety of pathophysiology, and typically can be classified as secondary to traumatic injury, rheumatic disease, or congenital lesions. Patients often present with persistent pain, swelling, and limitations on function, usually focused on the anterior aspect of the joint. Evaluation should be guided by a detailed history and physical examination, followed by clinical, laboratory, and imaging studies as indicated. The pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of these conditions will be the focus of this article.

Antithrombotic Pharmacologic Prophylaxis Use During Conservative and Surgical Management of Foot and Ankle Disorders: A Systematic Review
This article presents a systematic review of the incidence of deep venous thrombosis (DVT)/pulmonary embolus (PE) during management of foot and ankle disorders in patients who did or did not receive antithrombotic pharmacologic prophylaxis. Incidence of DVT/PE in both groups was low; however, more than half of the patients in both groups received some form of antithrombotic pharmacologic prophylaxis of varying duration, making it difficult to determine the true protective effect of antithrombotic pharmacologic prophylaxis.

Subtalar Joint Arthroscopy
Subtalar joint arthroscopy can be performed on a wide array of pathology. The procedure has progressed from a diagnostic test to a reconstructive procedure. Although it is not as popular as ankle arthroscopy, it is becoming more commonly discussed in the literature and is part of many arthroscopy courses. Better education along with improved instrumentation will allow more foot and ankle surgeons to treat pathology of the subtalar joint with arthroscopic techniques. This will lead to improved outcomes and lower complication rates in treating that pathology.

Arthroscopic Ankle Arthrodesis
Arthroscopic ankle arthrodesis provides the surgeon with an alternative to traditional open techniques. Arthroscopic ankle arthrodesis has demonstrated faster union rates, decreased complications, reduced postoperative pain, and shorter hospital stays. Adherence to sound surgical techniques, particularly with regard to joint preparation, is critical for success. Although total ankle replacement continues to grow in popularity, arthroscopic ankle arthrodesis remains a viable alternative for the management of end-stage arthritic ankle.

Arthroscopic Treatment of Ankle Osteochondral Lesions
Arthroscopic treatment of osteochondral lesions (OCLs) of the ankle is a popular first-line surgical option after conservative therapy has failed. MRI is the preferred imaging modality to evaluate OCLs and aid in surgical planning. Associated soft tissue pathology must be appreciated and addressed surgically, because associated synovitis and soft tissue impingement often contribute to symptoms. The diverse treatment modalities available via arthroscopy offer simplistic and straightforward solutions for biologically and mechanically complicated pathology. Marrow-stimulating techniques, particularly microfracture, have shown...

Arthroscopy of the Ankle and Foot
Arthroscopy of the ankle and foot is one of the more innovative forms of arthroscopic surgery of the human body. In its infancy, it was a more direct, but awkward diagnostic tool. It has become a mainstay in the field of foot and ankle surgery, and it continues to progress on an ongoing basis. Arthroscopic ankle fusions are becoming more commonplace and we are now able reduce fractures with less invasive techniques using arthroscopy. Similarly, arthroscopy of the foot is now becoming more established. Surgeons are routinely performing arthroscopic procedures of the subtalar and the first metatarsal phalangeal joints. The c...

Plantar fasciitis (fasciosis) treatment outcome study: Plantar fascia thickness measured by ultrasound and correlated with patient self-reported improvement
Abstract: Ultrasound, well recognized as an effective diagnostic tool, reveals a thickening of the plantar fascia in patients with plantar fasciitis/fasciosis disease. The authors hypothesized that ultrasound would also reveal a decrease in the plantar fascia thickness for patients undergoing treatment for the disease, a hypothesis that, heretofore, had been only tested on a limited number of subjects. They conducted a more statistically significant study that found that clinical treatment with injection and biomechanical correction does indeed diminish plantar fascia thickness as shown on ultrasound.
