Strength of Syndesmosis Fixation: Two TightRope versus One TightRope with Plate-and-Screw Construct.


Injuries involving the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis can lead to critical destabilization of the ankle mortise. Although specific indications for operative fixation remain unclear, accurate reduction of the syndesmosis has been correlated with the best functional outcomes. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the maximum torque and rotation to… (More)
