Hip resurfacing is an alternative to standard hip replacement surgery used for the treatment of severe hip arthritis. Hip resurfacing is not a new surgery. Hip resurfacing surgery has been performed since the early 1970s. However, recent changes in hip resurfacing implant design have led to a new interest in this procedure.
Subluxation of the Middle Facet of the Subtalar Joint as a Marker of Peritalar Subluxation in Adult Acquired Flatfoot Deformity
Progressive peritalar subluxation (PTS) is part of adult acquired flatfoot deformity (AAFD). We investigated the use of the middle facet as an indicator of PTS using standing, weight-bearing computed tomography (CT) images. We hypothesized that weight-bearing CT would be an accurate method of measuring increased subluxation (“uncoverage”) and incongruence of the middle-facet among patients with AAFD.
Feet and ankle swelling is uncomfortable, and sometimes it keeps you from moving freely. But there are several ways to relieve swelling from everyday causes — and sometimes you can even prevent it
