Two Mass General Research Groups Share Resources, Lab Space and a Vision for the Future
Massachusetts General Hospital's Foot and Ankle Research and Innovation Lab (FARIL) and the SORG Research Group have combined their diverse, international teams to conduct clinical research and develop medical devices and AI-based clinical decision support tools for use in the field of orthopedic surgery and beyond.
Unilateral Chronic Ankle Injury Affects the Kinematic Parameters of the Uninjured Ankle
In the first study of its type, Massachusetts General Hospital researchers observed that the uninjured ankles in patients with unilateral chronic ankle injury have a significant tendency toward plantarflexion and inversion compared with healthy controls, showing similar alterations as the unstable contralateral side.
New Measurement Proposed for Detecting Syndesmotic Instability in 3D
Orthopedic surgeons at Massachusetts General Hospital have developed a clinically applicable, three-dimensional method of assessing syndesmotic (high ankle) instability on weight-bearing CT (WBCT) scans that measures "percentage of change," which is easier than using a numeric scale with an absolute value.
