Episurf Medical added that it has previously delivered one custom-made implant solution for a patient in Germany with an ankle joint lesion.
Based on the considerations above, the purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of wearing HS and LS on (1) ankle angle excursion during a weight-bearing dorsiflexion (WB-DF) maneuver; and (2) ankle joint kinematics (contact angle and RoM), kinetics (moment, power, and stiffness), and jump performance (jump height) in the sagittal plane during drop jumps and lay-up jumps.
Additionally, the large number of ligamentous structures and overall strength of the ligaments provide significant supplemental stability to the ankle joint articulation.
Clinical and cadaver studies on the ankle joint arthroscopy.
The stability of the ankle joint is not enhanced by fibula fixation, because axial compression fractures are not accompanied by ligamentous damage.
