Increasing muscle strength is good, but increasing muscle power may be even better for enjoying a longer life, according to a recent study.
Supramalleolar Osteotomy with Medial Distraction Arthroplasty for Ankle Osteoarthritis with Talar Tilt
An increased preoperative talar tilt (TT) angle was reported to be positively correlated with treatment failure after supramalleolar osteotomy (SMOT) for varus ankle osteoarthritis. Distraction arthroplasty was reported to have the ability to correct increased TT angles. The purpose of the current study was to compare the outcomes between SMOT with and without medial distraction arthroplasty (MDA) in the treatment of varus ankle osteoarthritis with increased TT angles.
