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...

Traumatic injury to the foot and ankle can result in long-term disability, which may have substantial negative implications on a patient's functional outcomes and quality of life. The diagnosis and appropriate management of these challenging injuries are not always agreed on or straightforward. In particular, the appropriate diagnosis and management of distal tibiofibular syndesmotic injuries as well as the surgical approach and role of primary subtalar arthrodesis for intra-articular calcaneal fractures are controversial...

INTRODUCTION: The anatomy of the distal tibia accounts for reduced biomechanical stability and higher complication rates when treating distal tibiofibular fractures with an intramedullary tibia nail (IMTN). The goal of this study was to identify variables that affect the stability of IMTN. We assessed the value of additional fibular fixation, angular stable interlocking screws (ASLS) and multiplanar screw configuration in IMTN. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was performed including 184 distal tibial fractures and associated fibula fracture treated with IMTN...

There are few reports on the surgical treatment of secondary malignancy arising from an osteochondroma on the lateral side of the proximal tibia. From March 2008 to December 2011, 3 patients were treated for a secondary chondrosarcoma from an osteochondroma of the proximal tibia involving the fibula. The operative procedure can be summed up as follows: (1) resection of the tumor including the fibula; (2) preservation of the peroneal nerve and the fibular head; and (3) arthrodesis of the proximal tibiofibular joint...

Ankle fractures are complex injuries with variable prognoses that depend upon many factors. The aim of the treatment is to restore the ankle joint biomechanical stability with maximum range of motion. Most ankle fractures are fibular fractures, which have a typical oblique fracture line in the distal fibula located in the area of the tibiofibular syndesmosis. The aim of this study was to simulate numerically several fixation techniques of the distal fibular fractures, evaluate their stability, determine their impact on surrounding tissue load, and correlate the results to clinical treatment experience...

Our study aims to investigate the effects of the SDF-1/CXCR4 axis on the repair of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in rats by mediating bone marrow derived from mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs). Healthy male SD rats were collected, their tibiofibulars were removed, cultured, and BMSCs were collected. The expression of cell-surface molecular proteins was examined using flow cytometry. The mRNA and protein expression of CXCR4 in cells were tested using qRT-PCR and western blotting analysis. An electronic brain injury instrument was utilized to build TBI rat models and each rat was assigned into the experiment, positive control and control groups (10 rats in each group)...

Amir Reza Vosoughi, Mark Glazebrook
Irreducible ankle fracture-dislocations are very rare entities. The present case report demonstrates an unusual finding of tibialis posterior and flexor digitorum longus tendons interposed in the tibiofibular joint impairing successful closed reduction of ankle fracture-dislocation. A 45-year-old patient presented with a bimalleolar pronation-external rotation ankle fracture-dislocation after a motorcycle accident. Attempts to perform closed reduction before surgery were unsuccessful. Subsequent urgent open reduction and internal fixation surgical management revealed interposition of the tibialis posterior and flexor digitorum longus tendons in the tibiofibular joint...

Reconstruction of unstable syndesmotic injuries is not trivial, and there is no generally accepted treatment guidelines. Thus, there still remain considerable controversies regarding diagnosis, classification and treatment of syndesmotic injuries. Syndesmotic malreduction is the most common indication for early re-operation after ankle fracture surgery, and widening of the ankle mortise by only 1 mm decreases the contact area of the tibiotalar joint by 42%. Outcome of ankle fractures with syndesmosis injury is worse than without, even after surgical syndesmotic stabilization...

BACKGROUND: Arthroscopic criteria for identifying syndesmotic disruption have been variable and subjective. We aimed to quantify syndesmotic disruption arthroscopically using a standardized measurement device. METHODS: Ten cadaveric lower extremity specimens were tested in intact state and after serial sectioning of the syndesmotic structures (anterior inferior tibiofibular ligament [AiTFL], interosseous ligament [IOL], posterior inferior tibiofibular ligament [PiTFL], deltoid)...

The Bosworth fracture is a pattern of fracture-dislocation of the ankle joint with fixed dislocation of the proximal part of the fibula behind the posterior malleolus. It is a rare injury, which requires high index of suspicion for diagnosis. Fixed dislocation of the fibula does not allow for closed reduction, so open reduction and fixation of fibula or tibia is required. We present a case report of a patient who suffered a Bosworth fracture, with associated medial malleolus fracture. She underwent surgical treatment with open reduction and internal fixation of the fibula and tibia...

INTRODUCTION: External rotation and gravity stress radiographs have been described to distinguish stable supination-external rotation-II (SER-II) ankle fractures from unstable SER-IV fractures. It has been previously shown that both external rotation and gravity stress views are equivalent in their ability to diagnose deltoid ligament injury. It has also been shown that the position of the ankle influences the external rotation stress radiograph. However, no data of ankle position exist for gravity stress radiographs...

AIM: To determine whether the anterior talofibular ligament injury will influence the Hook test result. METHOD: A three-dimensional model of the ankle was established based on CT scan of a healthy volunteer and ligament attachment through references; Four groups (A-D) of operating conditions were set up. In group A, the anterior and posterior ligaments of the inferior tibiofibular joint were cut off and the anterior talofibular ligament was kept intact; in group B, all the anterior and posterior tibiofibular ligaments and the anterior talofibular ligament were cut off; in group C, the medial and lateral ligaments of the ankle joint and the inferior tibiofibular ligament were kept intact; in group D, only the talofibular ligament was cut off and other ligaments were kept intact...

Tibiofibular joint injury in children is an uncommon injury. It is usually associated with acute injuries in sports that involve aggressive twisting of the knee, such as soccer and snowboarding. We present a case of a 17-year-old male adolescent who sustained an acute dislocation of the anterolateral tibiofibular joint with routine ambulation, who had a chronic history of subluxation. To our knowledge, this has not been previously reported. The diagnosis requires a high level of awareness and suspicion, and plain radiographs may aid in the diagnosis especially if contralateral comparison views are obtained...

REVIEW
Nicholas M Fort, Amiethab A Aiyer, Jonathan R Kaplan, Niall A Smyth, Anish R Kadakia
The syndesmosis is important for ankle stability and load transmission and is commonly injured in association with ankle sprains and fractures. Syndesmotic disruption is associated with between 5 and 10% of ankle sprains and 11-20% of operative ankle fractures. Failure to recognize and appropriately treat syndesmotic disruption can portend poor functional outcomes for patients; therefore, early recognition and appropriate treatment are critical. Syndesmotic injuries are difficult to diagnose, and even when identified and treated, a slightly malreduced syndesmosis can lead to joint destruction and poor functional outcomes...

INTRODUCTION: Tillaux Fractures are an infrequent type of fracture that occurs in teenagers. The mechanism is an external rotation that causes stress on the anterior tibiofibular ligament, which displace the distal tibial physis fragment. METHODS: 6 patients (5 girls and one boy), with an age between 12-14 years, who had Tillaux fractures with a displacement more than 2 mm; were treated by orthopedic reduction and fixation with a screw. RESULTS: After surgery patients underwent cast immovilization for 4 to 6 weeks; starting then progressive partial bear-weight...
