An anatomic study was performed to confirm whether the lateral malleolus could serve as a simple and reproducible anatomic reference for the distal insertion of the calcaneofibular ligament (CFL). Dissection was performed after placement of a Kirschner wire to simulate the calcaneal tunnel for the distal insertion of the CFL. The skin was penetrated 1 cm distal and posterior to the tip of the lateral malleolus. The main information recorded was the distance from the Kirschner wire to the centre… CONTINUE READING
