Our educational program is holding on strongly. Every Federation has already organized an IFFAS webinar and we are exploring new partnerships to move forward.
Our group has developed solid expertise in managing posttraumatic foot sequelae, a product of continuous work in major trauma centers in our country. Following our experience in limb lengthening and reconstruction surgery, we have performed multiple corrections of congenital foot and ankle deformities with hexapod ring fixators.
Posttraumatic ankle equinus is associated with rigid deformity, poor skin condition, and multiple prior surgeries. Open acute correction has been described using osteotomies, talectomy, and arthrodesis, but concerns exist about skin complications, neurologic alterations, secondary limb discrepancy, and bone loss. Gradual correction using a multiplanar ring fixator and arthroscopic ankle arthrodesis (AAA) may decrease these complications.
