May highlighted article: Bone Marrow Stimulation for Osteochondral Lesions of the Talus – Are Clinical Outcomes Maintained 10 Years Later?
Arthroscopic bone marrow stimulation (BMS) is considered the first-line treatment for osteochondral lesions of the talus (OLTs). However, the long-term stability of the clinical success of BMS remains unclear.
The advances in Total Ankle Arthroplasty (TAA) have been substantial in implant design and operative technique. One recent innovation is patient-specific instrumentation (PSI). PSI uses a preoperative computed tomographic (CT) scan and generates cutting blocks specific to each patient’s anatomy as well as a modifiable operative plan
April highlighted article: Total Ankle Arthroplasty Radiographic Alignment Comparison Between Patient- Specific Instrumentation and Standard Instrumentation
Several benefits are published supporting patient-specific instrumentation (PSI) in total ankle arthroplasty (TAA). This study seeks to determine if TAA with PSI yields different radiographic outcomes vs standard instrumentation (SI).
