30 ankles in 27 patients operated on for chronic lateral instability with tensioning of the lateral ligaments and capsular tissue were examined using RSA preoperatively, at 20 and 60 months. 28 ankles were considered excellent or improved by the patients. Mechanical stability (talar adduction and translation) was increased without compromising the passive range of motions.
