A study published in PeerJ sheds light on the potential game-changing impact of advanced footwear technology (AFT) on elite sprint performances in track and field. The research, titled "The Potential Impact of Advanced Footwear Technology on the Recent Evolution of Elite Sprint Performances," reveals the significant strides made in sprint performance and suggests that AFT has played a pivotal role in these improvements.
Swelling in the ankles and feet is a common problem. This swelling is often caused by a buildup of fluid, which is called edema. Edema is common in the feet, ankles, and legs, and often only one ankle is swollen.
A comparative analysis of between percutaneous cannulated screw fixation and traditional plate internal fixation in treatment of Sanders II and III calcaneal fractures
The objective of this study is to compare the clinical efficacy of percutaneous cannulated screw fixation and traditional plate internal fixation in the treatment of Sanders II and III calcaneal fractures.
When discussing sports-related injuries, we typically think of professional or organized scholastic sports. However, many people in the United States get injured from basketball or football pick-up games, while others get injured cycling and running.
Should we fix the fibula in tibial plafond fractures? A meta-analysis reviewing the evidence base for fibula open reduction and internal fixation in tibial plafond fractures.
Open reduction and internal fixation is the standard of care to stabilize tibial plafond fractures. However, it remains uncertain as to whether fixation of the fibula affects outcome. This study aimed to review the evidence base for comparable outcomes in tibial plafond fractures when undergoing open reduction and internal fixation of ipsilateral fibula fractures compared with open reduction and internal fixation of the tibia alone
