Title: Ultrasound-guided gastrocnemius recession: a new ultra-minimally invasive surgical technique.
Issue Date: 2016
Citation: BMC Musculoskelet Disord.2016 10;(17)1:409
Abstract: Isolated gastrocnemius contracture is thought to lead to numerous conditions. Although many techniques have been described for gastrocnemius recession, potential anesthetic, cosmetic, and wound-related complications can lead to patient dissatisfaction. Open and endoscopic recession techniques require epidural anesthesia, lower limb ischemia, and stitches and may lead to damage of the sural nerve, which is not under the complete control of the surgeon at all stages of the procedure. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a new technique based on ultrasound-guided ultra-minimally invasive gastrocnemius recession.
