The morphology of the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis can determine the pathology and mechanism of syndesmotic injury. The present study assessed measurements obtained from computed tomography (CT) images of the normal distal tibiofibular syndesmosis in Japanese subjects. CT scans of 120 right feet with a normal distal tibiofibular syndesmosis obtained from January 2009 to December 2016 were retrospectively assessed at the level 10 mm proximal to the tibial plafond. The incisura fibularis was considered concave when its depth was ≥4 mm and shallow when its depth was <4 mm...

BACKGROUND: Many injuries of the lower extremities, especially the knee and ankle, occur during sports activity, and the incidence rate is higher in women than in men. HYPOTHESIS: The hypothesis was that phases of the menstrual cycle affect the width of the tibiofibular syndesmosis during drop landing in healthy young women and that such changes at the tibiofibular joint also affect the dynamics and neuromuscular coordination of the lower extremities. STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive laboratory study...

Sirtuin-3 (Sirt3) is an essential metabolic regulatory enzyme that plays an important role in mitochondrial metabolism, but its role in bone marrow and skeletal homeostasis remains largely unknown. In this study, we hypothesize that increased expression of Sirt3 plays a role in skeletal aging. Using mice that overexpress Sirt3 [i.e., Sirt3 transgenic (Sirt3Tg)], we show that Sirt3 is a positive regulator of adipogenesis and osteoclastogenesis and a negative regulator of skeletal homeostasis. Sirt3Tg mice exhibited more adipocytes in the tibia compared with control mice...

BACKGROUND: Appropriate management of ankle syndesmotic instability is needed to prevent the development of complications. Previous biomechanical studies have evaluated movement of the fibula after screw or suture button fixations with different results, most likely being caused by variations in experimental setups that did not mirror the in vivo clinical setting. This study aimed to arthroscopically compare in a cadaveric model the stability of syndesmotic fixation with either a suture button or syndesmotic screw...

Without clear reference, the precision of syndesmotic screw placement cannot be guaranteed and malposition of these screws leads to poor results. Therefore, to prevent malpositioning of syndesmotic screws, an improved understanding of the orientation of tibiofibular syndesmosis is essential. We analyzed cross-sectional computed tomography (CT) scans of the foot and ankle to identify precise screw positions for the treatment of syndesmotic injuries. A total of 134 calcaneal fractures with intact tibiofibular syndesmosis were enrolled in this retrospective study...

BACKGROUND: Arthroscopic evaluation of the syndesmosis allows direct visualization of syndesmotic instability. The purpose of this study was to determine the minimum degree of ligamentous injury necessary to destabilize the syndesmosis in the coronal plane when assessed arthroscopically and pinpoint where such instability should be measured within the incisura. METHODS: Fourteen cadaveric specimens were divided into 2 groups and arthroscopically assessed first with the syndesmosis intact and then following serial differential ligamentous transection...

Proximal tibiofibular joint (PTFJ) instability is a rare cause of lateral-sided knee pain. The authors present a case of bilateral, symptomatic PTFJ instability with peroneal nerve dysfunction in an active 16-year-old female athlete. This was addressed with peroneal nerve decompression and PTFJ stabilization using a suspensory button fixation system. This provides an alternative treatment from historical methods such as PTFJ fusion or re-approximation of the joint with tendon through bone tunnels. The surgical technique, as well as potential treatment challenges, is described in detail...

Distal tibiofibular syndesmosis (DTS) has wide anatomic variability in depth of incisura fibularis and shape of tibial tubercles. We designed a 3-year prospective cohort study of 300 young physical training soldiers in an Army Physical Fitness School. Ankle computed tomography (CT) scans showed that 56% of the incisura fibularis were a "C" shape, 25% were a "1" shape, and 19% were a "Г" shape. Furthermore, we invited a randomly selected subcohort of 6 participants in each shape of DTS to undergo a three-dimensional (3D) laser scanning...

BACKGROUND: Now, using a suture-button device to treat distal tibiofibular syndesmotic injuries is overwhelming due to its advantages over screw fixation. Current systematic review was conducted to make a comparison between suture-button fixation and traditionally screw fixation in the treatment of syndesmotic injuries. The outcomes included functional outcomes, implant removal, implant failure, malreduction, post-operative complications (except implant failure and malreduction), and cost-effectiveness aspects...

A tibiofibular syndesmotic injury is rare, accounting 6 % of ankle sprain. The diagnosis can be difficult and is often likened to a lateral ankle sprain. Clinical signs are more subtle and pains are located above the joint line tibiotalar. These lesions should be considered in athletes with pain or trauma to the ankle. Late diagnosis is associated with significant morbidity up to osteoarthritis of the ankle. The management of these lesions is paramount and surgery may be necessary. The purpose of our article is to highlight this condition to increase the diagnosis rate and get our patients optimum recovery...

Metal screws are the most widely used in treating syndesmotic injuries; however, failure and the rigidity of the screws can threaten the success of the treatment and increase the cost of care. We performed open reduction and internal fixation of a fibula fracture followed by fixation of the tibiofibular joint with an olive wire and one half of an external fixator. We present a review of 1 patient treated with this material. We believe this method to be a physiologic fixation system with the advantage of being safe, inexpensive, adjustable, and effective; however, further clinical investigation and comparison to other methods is needed in order to better understand it clinical utility...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate syndesmosis-only fixation in Weber C ankle fractures with tibiofibular diastasis and to assess the need for additional fibular fixation. METHODS: Twenty-one patients with Weber C ankle fractures and tibiofibular diastasis were followed for at least 24 months after treatment. In treatment of the Weber C fractures, only a syndesmosis screw was used through a mini open lateral incision if the syndesmosis could be anatomically reduced and fibular length and rotation could be restored...

In the present retrospective analysis, we introduce a custom suture-button fixation device for acute ankle syndesmotic injuries that allows for early weightbearing without another planned operation for hardware removal. We evaluated 87 consecutive ankles in 87 patients (49 males [56.32%] and 38 females [43.68%]). Of the 87 patients, 15 (17.24%) withdrew or were lost to follow-up, leaving 72 patients (82.76%) in the present study. Their mean age was 35.2 (range 17 to 67) years. Nineteen patients (26.39%) presented with a pure syndesmotic disruption, and 53 (73...

The study was carried out on 50 human lower legs obtained during autopsies (KBET: 122.6120.315.2016). The anatomy of the joint was studied using classical anatomical description methods. Based also on literature we have reviewed the current knowledge on the inferior tibiofibular joint blood supply considering the important clinically aspect - vascular density. Authors of this paper postulate relatively low vascular density of the region described and potential worse condition for healing in case of injury or after surgical procedures performed...
