Dear Annals of Medical Research Readers

As of the end of March 2021, I have started to work as Chief Editor at Annals of Medical Research. Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 28 years.  Our Journal, which is online as an open access journal with monthly free access, is being scanned in many national and international indexes (ULAKBIM TR Dizin, Turkish Medline, EBSCO, Google Scholar, etc.). I would like to thank the Editors before me who contributed to this level. Our primary goal is to ensure the maintenance of this good state of the journal and to ensure that it is scanned in prestigious international indexes (Pubmed Central, SCI-Expended, etc.). In order to achieve these goals, it depends on the original research articles that can be cited and the articles published in our Journal to be cited sufficiently in other international journals. The contributions of our readers, reviewers and authors in achieving this goal are of great importance.

I hope to announce the news that we have reached our goals as soon as possible.

Abstract

Aim: To investigate the incidence of concomitant osteochondral lesions of the talus (OLT) and their effect on clinical outcome in anterolateral impingement syndrome (ALIS).
Materials and Methods: Patients who underwent ankle arthroscopy due to ALIS of the ankle between 2012 and 2018 were retrospectively screened. The patients were divided into two groups according to the presence of OLT. Preoperatively hindfoot alignment (HA) was measured on long axial view radiographs. All measurements were performed by the experienced musculoskeletal radiologist. The association between osteochondral lesions of the talus and hindfoot alignment disorder was statistically assessed. The patients before and after surgery were evaluated with American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) Hindfoot score for clinical performance.
Results: OLT accompanied impingement syndrome in 38 (34.8%) of 109 patients examined. The preoperative and postoperative AOFAS Pain and AOFAS Function results were found no significantly different between the two groups according to the presence of OLT (n.s.). However, AOFAS Alignment results of OLT (-) Group were significantly higher than OLT (+) Group. Mean Hindfoot Angle (HA) was −3.7 ± 12.8 (varus) and 4.6 ± 11.2 (valgus) in feet with and without OLT, respectively (Table 1). In this study, there was a significant association between positive OLT and clinical varus hindfoot (p .001)
Conclusion: In the current study the hindfoot alignment showed association with the location of OLT in Anterolateral Impingement Syndrome. However, it was also determined that the presence of chondral damage had no negative effect on the treatment of anterolateral impingement syndrome. It should be kept in mind that this syndrome can be accompanied by osteochondral lesions of the talus at a significant rate.

Keywords: Ankle impingement; hindfoot alignment; osteochondral lesion
