Distal tibiofibular synostosis and late sequelae of an ankle sprain.

Abstract

The late sequelae of an ankle sprain is described in the form of an acquired tibiofibular synostosis. A synostosis can result in loss of dynamic motion between the tibia and fibula, which may create decreased and painful ankle motion. A case report and surgical procedure is presented.
