BoopalanAbstractDistal Fibula Giant cell tumour (GCT) is a rare condition. The described methods of treatment for distal fibula GCT include excision of tumour and ankle arthrodesis, replacement of distal fibula with ipsilateral proximal fibula and autograft or allograft reconstruction. This case report describes treatment of distal fibula grade 3 GCT with involvement of syndesmosis with tumour excision, proximal fibular slide and reconstruction of ankle joint. With this technique the an...

ConclusionThis systematic review provides a detailed overview about the variability of the coronal knee alignment in non-osteoarthritic knees. The broad variability of all coronal alignment parameters highlights the necessity for a more anatomic and individualized approach in knee arthroplasty. It also offers the fundament to understand the changes in osteoarthritic knees.Level of clinical evidenceSystematic review, Level IV.

Arterial endofibrosis is a vascular disease that typically affects the external iliac artery in young patients who undergo extreme exercise, mainly bicyclists.1 The diagnosis is indirectly suspected when these extreme athletes undergo ankle-brachial indices (ABIs) before and after extreme exercise. Whereas the diagnosis can often be suggested by exercise ABIs and computed tomography angiography, the diagnosis is classically best defined by angiography. Dr Cherry and his group were one of the first to recognize this lesion when they described seven patients who underwent replacement or repair of the external iliac artery.

We describe a single-step osteochondral allograft transfer to access the posterolateral talar dome that avoids the need for a fibular osteotomy and therefore eliminates morbidity while reducing operative time.

The aim of this study was to compare outcome (clinical and pedographic) of TJR (Roto-Glide) and A of MTP1.Material and methodsAll patients that completed follow-up of at least 24 months after TJR and A of MTP1 before November 5, 2018 were included in the study. Preoperatively and at follow-up, radiographs and/or weight-bearing computed tomographies (WBC...
