The ankle and foot present a diverse pathology normally secondary to trauma: ligament sprains, ankle or toe dislocations, malleolus, talus, calcaneus, metatarsal and phalanges fractures, etc.; but also to mechanical overload due to work or sports practice: plantar fascitis, Achilles tendinitis and ruptures, tendinitis and dislocation of the fibula muscles, tibialis anterior, flexors and extensors of the fingers. Astragalus osteochondritis, bone edema, nerve entrapment syndromes of the ankle and foot, etc.
The diagnostic tests commonly used are radiographs, ultrasound, CT and MRI, depending on the condition being studied.
The treatment of this pathology requires different types of surgical access as well as the use of ankle arthroscopy as a minimally invasive treatment method. Sometimes depending on the pathology, the use of infiltrations (steroids, hyaluronic acid, platelet-rich plasma-PRP) is indicated, which allows us to heal some pathologies and sometimes improve pain in the recovery process.
