Although there is also loss of the active interdigital planter flexion of the big toe and this usually had no effect to the patient26 . Peroneus brevis tendon transfer has gained popularity However, there is a concern about the reduced strength of plantar flexion and ankle eversion 27. Recent studies reported that The peroneal muscles provide only 4% of the total work capacity in plantar flexion, and the peroneus brevis provides 28% of the eversion capacity of the hindfoot28. And in this study and similar studies no patient complained of any disability related to these issues. This study used a combination of V-Y advancement and Peroneus brevis augmentation for management of chronic Achilles rupture with a gap defect more than 6 cm, over a follow up period of 24 months we reported no re-rupture and improvement of the overall Achilles tendon total rupture score from 26.27 to 84.9 and improvement of AOFAS score from 53.18 to

The radiograph depicts Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease (LCPD) of the left hip. The right hip is not affected. This childhood hip disorder is a result of idiopathic avascular necrosis of the growing bony epiphysis of the femoral head, with boys affected four times more that girls (Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, n.d.). This interruption in blood supply to the bone results in necrosis, and the femoral head become flattened due to weight and pressure placed on the bone during normal physical activity (Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, n.d.). View: This is an Anterioposterior view demonstrating the entire pelvis, sacrum, the lumbosacral articulation, both proximal femurs and hip joints.
However, in more severe cases, the coracoclavicular ligaments, medial to the AC joint, are also involved and separated or deformed in response to injury (“Acromioclavicular separation”, n.d.). Therefore, when AC joint separation occurs, stability within the shoulder is greatly disturbed. Occurrence Shoulder separation is not an uncommon event. It

This is a 52-year-old female housekeeper who sustained an injury when she lost footing and twisted her right knee before completely falling 2 flights of stairs.

MRI of right knee without gadolinium dated 4/23/16 revealed there is a high-grade sprain of the ACL; there is a low-grade sprain of the MCL; there is a vertical oblique tear through the body of the medial meniscus with underlying chondromalacic change and subchondral edema; and mild to moderate chondromalacia of the patella.
Physical therapy such as ultrasound, stretching, strengthening, and range-of-motion exercises can be helpful in people whose symptoms have become less intense but still exist. In some cases, medicine can ease the pain and swelling. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and other nonprescription pain relievers can relieve pain and reduce inflammation. Corticosteroids by mouth or corticosteroid injections may relieve pressure on the median nerve and provide immediate, temporary relief to persons with mild or intermittent symptoms. Patients with diabetes or who are predisposed to diabetes should not use corticosteroids for a prolonged period of time because it can make it difficult to regulate insulin levels.

Any damage or infection fills this space with fluid or blood which restricts the free motion of the head of the femur causing anguish, stiffness, and even locking of the joint. Inflammation, swelling, redness and warmth are few signs of this pain.
