Unrecognised Acute Rupture of the Achilles Tendon in Severe Ankle Sprain: 在嚴重的腳踝旋後扭傷個案中被忽略了的破裂跟腱 (Article-in-press)

Description of article

A sprained ankle commonly results from the stretching or tearing of the fibres of the anterior talofibular ligament, calcaneofibular ligament, and posterior talofibular ligament, occurring as a result of excessive supination and inversion of the plantarflexed foot while the tibia is externally rotated. Inversion injuries involve about 25% of all injuries of the musculoskeletal system, and about 50% of these injuries are sport related. An ankle sprain is often thought of as an injury involving only the lateral ankle ligaments. Concomitant injuries including fractures, soft tissue sprains, muscle strains, or neuritis can frequently occur. We reported a case of unrecognised rupture of the Achilles tendon accompanying severe collateral ligament injury of the ankle joint. To the best of our knowledge, this injury pattern has not been reported previously in the English literature, although Achilles tendinitis has been reported in 12.2% of ankle sprain cases.

Radiological Approach to Forefoot Pain (Review Article Vol 19 Issue 1 June 2015)

Description of article

Forefoot pain is a common clinical complaint in orthopaedic practice. In general, the foot is divided into three anatomical zones: hindfoot, midfoot, and forefoot. These three zones are divided posteriorly by Chopart's joint and anteriorly by Lisfranc's joint. The forefoot is defined as the part of the foot distal to the Lisfranc joint. It includes the metatarsals, phalanges, and surrounding tendons and soft tissue. Pain in this area can be caused by numerous conditions, which could be due to local or distant causes. In this article, a brief discussion on how to tackle this common problem from a radiological approach is conducted.
