[Experimental studies on the biomechanics of syndesmosis].


The amplitude of movement of the distal fibula was measured with the tibio-fibular syndesmosis intact, severed and transfixed after anatomical and insufficient reduction. Transfixation by means of a location screw inserted above the syndesmosis horizontally and at an angle of 30 degrees in the frontal plane proved to be optimal since the quality of movement… (More)
