Over a 10-year period, 19 patients were seen who had the clinical features of disruption of the syndesmotic ligaments of the ankle. Seventeen of these were available for follow-up by history and 13 by physical examination. The patients underwent an arthroscopy for persistent symptoms an average of 2 years following the injury.
