Vern Christensen, Jj Vanyperen, Bruce Werber
A retrospective review of 45 surgeries for repair of Talotarsal instability, with a review of the clinical, radiographic, and biomechanical aspects associated with Talotarsal dislocation and instability. The surgeons utilized an acellular lyophilized human dermal tissue engineered into a cylindrical configuration (stent) to be implanted from lateral to medial via the sinus tarsi. The goal of surgery is to reduce the dislocation, to enhance positioning of the rearfoot and allow regeneration of the Talotarsal ligamentous structures into a more stable configuration. Outcomes found in this review are very promising, none of the implant stents required removal, elimination of the sense of hard stop as seen with other materials in this procedure. Conclusion: excellent outcomes with minimal adverse events, rapid restoration of function in all patients.
