Recommended Conferences for Foot and Ankle

Foot and Ankle

As per available reports about 2 Relevant journals, 257 Conference proceedings are presently dedicated exclusively to food and ankle and about 190 Open access articles , 45 National symposiums are being published on foot and ankle.

The foot is made up of 26 bones and 33 joints that work together with 19 muscles and 107 ligaments to execute highly precise movements. Even small changes in the foot can unexpectedly undermine its structural integrity and cause pain with every step. The ankle is composed of 3 bones; tibia, fibula and talus. The ends of the bones in the joints of the ankle are covered by cartilage. The major ligaments of the ankle are; the anterior tibiofibular ligament, the lateral collateral ligaments and the deltoid ligaments.

OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members.

Scope and Importance:                                                                         

Foot and Ankle Conference provides the scope for opportunities to learn progressed by international scientists and academicians. Foot and Ankle Conference offers excessive quality content to suit the diverse professional development of these medicines to treat people all over the globe. It is a perfect platform to discuss the current discoveries and developments in the field of Orthopedics and Rheumatology.

Foot and Ankle conference aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects of:

1. Rheumatoid Arthritis

2. Gout

3. Septic arthritis

4. Osteoarthritis

It also provides the platform for researchers, scholars and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the field of Orthopedics and Rheumatology.

The foot is an anatomical structure found in many vertebrates. It is the terminal portion of a limb which bears weight and allows locomotion. In many animals with feet, the foot is a separate organ at the terminal part of the leg made up of one or more segments or bones, generally including claws or nails.

The human foot and ankle is a strong and complex mechanical structure containing 26 bones, 33 joints (20 of which are actively articulated), and more than a hundred muscles, tendons, and ligaments. The foot can be subdivided into the hindfoot, the midfoot, and the forefoot. The hindfoot is composed of the talus (or ankle bone) and the calcaneus (or heel bone). The two long bones of the lower leg, the tibia and fibula, are connected to the top of the talus to form the ankle. Connected to the talus at the subtalar joint, the calcaneus, the largest bone of the foot, is cushioned inferiorly by a layer of fat. The five irregular bones of the midfoot, the cuboid, navicular, and three cuneiform bones, form the arches of the foot which serves as a shock absorber. The midfoot is connected to the hind- and fore-foot by muscles and the plantar fascia. The forefoot is composed of five toes and the corresponding five proximal long bones forming the metatarsus. Similar to the fingers of the hand, the bones of the toes are called phalanges and the big toe has two phalanges while the other four toes have three phalanges. The joints between the phalanges are called interphalangeal and those between the metatarsus and phalanges are called metatarsophalangeal. Both the midfoot and forefoot constitute the dorsum (the area facing upwards while standing) and the planum.

The ankle, or the talocrural region, is the region where the foot and the leg meet. The ankle includes three joints: the ankle joint proper or talocrural joint, the subtalar joint, and the Inferior tibiofibular joint. The movements produced at this joint are dorsiflexion and plantarflexion of the foot. In common usage, the term ankle refers exclusively to the ankle region. In medical terminology, "ankle" (without qualifiers) can refer broadly to the region or specifically to the talocrural joint. The main bones of the ankle region are the talus (in the foot), and the tibia and fibula (in the leg). The talus is also called the ankle bone. The talocrural joint is a synovial hinge joint that connects the distal ends of the tibia and fibula in the lower limb with the proximal end of the talus. The articulation between the tibia and the talus bears more weight than that between the smaller fibula and the talus. The bony architecture of the ankle consists of three bones: the tibia, the fibula, and the talus. The articular surface of the tibia is referred to as the plafond. The medial malleolusis a bony process extending distally off the medial tibia. The distal-most aspect of the fibula is called the lateral malleolus. Together, the malleoli, along with their supporting ligaments, stabilize the talus underneath the tibia. The bony arch formed by the tibial plafond and the two malleoli is referred to as the ankle "mortise" (or talar mortise). The mortise is a rectangular socket. The ankle is composed of three joints: the talocrural joint (also called tibiotalar joint, talar mortise, talar joint), the subtalar joint (also called talocalcaneal), and Inferior tibiofibular joint. The joint surface of all bones in the ankle is covered with articular cartilage.

Market Analysis

The foot & ankle market consists of devices used in orthopedics such as plates, fusion screws, wires, and pins or staples used for musculoskeletal repairs. Total joint implants, recently introduced in the market, have reduced the necessity to simply fuse the ankle. These artificial joints provide increased mobility and better biomechanical motion to the patient than ankle fusion or arthrodesis. Due to the increasing acceptance of the devices, it is estimated that the market will compete highly against the ankle fusion devices market. The foot & ankle devices market was valued at $3.2 billion in 2011, and is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 6.0% to reach $4.5 billion by 2017.
