HyProCure Before & After

  1. HyProCure® Extra-Osseous TaloTarsal Stabilization Before & After
  2. “Simplicity is achieving maximum results with minimal effort”
  3. What exactly can be achieved with HyProCure® ?
  4. HyProCure® is a very valuable effective tool. Let’s take a closer look.
  5. Once the talus is stabilized on the talotarsal mechanism many things will happen.
  6. There will be a significant decrease in strain on many important structures of the foot and ankle!
  7. Forefoot valgus- reduced. “Too many toes” sign, abductory twist, posterior tibial tendon dysfunction, over-pronation, adductovarus hammertoes.
  8. Forefoot Valgus- reduced. “Too many toes” sign no longer present.
  9. Forefoot Valgus- reduced. Abductory twist – decreased shear forces to the ball of the foot.
  10. Forefoot Valgus- reduced. Over-pronation is decreased.
  11. Forefoot Valgus- reduced. Adductovarus/flexor stabilization digital deformities are also significantly reduced.
  12. What do you see? Significant medial talar head bulging, increased pressure and tension on and within the tarsal tunnel decreasing blood flow, traumatizing the posterior tibial nerve, increased strain to posterior tibial tendon?
  13. What do you see? Medial dislocation of the talar head, transverse plane deformity- internally stabilized with HyProCure® .
  14. Hind-foot Effects? The medial bands of the Achilles tendon have a significantly increased strain. The Gastro-Soleal complex has to overcome the hyperpronatory forces to bring the hind-foot back to neutral position along with the tibialis posterior to supinate the foot during the gait cycle.

  16. Pre & Post EOTTS with HyProCure® The height of the navicular is maintained therefore stabilizing the arch.

  18. Pre & Post HyProCure®
  19. Pre & Post HyProCure® Let’s again think about what is occurring in the pre-op foot. The tibialis posterior tendon is being abnormally stretched with every step taken and while standing due to talotarsal dislocation. Immediately upon the insertion of HyProCure® this strain is eliminated. Finally the body has a chance to heal the diseased tendon.
  20. Can we all agree that this foot has alignment issues? Talus is dislocating on the talotarsal mechanism. This foot is mechanically disadvantage.
  21. 3 Days after being HyProCured.
  22. 3 Days after being HyProCured. This foot now internally corrected. We don’t have to worry about patient compliance. Excessive strain is eliminated.
  23. 3 Days HyProCured.
  24. Which foot would you rather have?
  25. Let’s take a look at what happens inside.
  26. What’s Normal  Talus is sitting on top of the calcaneus  Articulating facets are in complete contact  Sinus tarsi is in an “open” position  Cyma Line normal  Navicular elevated
  27. What’s Abnormal  Talus not sitting on top of the calcaneus  Articulating facets are partially displaced  Sinus tarsi is partially collapsed/obliterated  Anterior deviated Cyma  Navicular has dropped.
  28. Comparison
  29. HyProCure stabilizes the talus to prevent anterior dislocation. Maintains the articular facets, keeps the sinus open. Repositioning of the talus on the tarsal mechanism.
  30. Talar declination decreased and brought back to normal alignment. HyProCure restores talar position on the tarsal mechanism.
  31. Navicular Drop The navicular is forced out of position due to the excessive abnormal forces from the talar displacement. Stabilization of the talus internally prevents navicular drop.
  32. What is wrong with this picture. • Plantarflexed talus • Anterior deviation of cyma • Navicular drop • Sustentaculum drop • This is not a “flat” foot look at the calcaneal inclination angle. • Talotarsal joint displacement
  33. There are so many things realigned.

  38. If we stabilize the TTJ than we can also help the rest of the body.
