1. Eighty-five patients have been studied soon after a ligamentous injury at the foot or ankle. These patients were treated in one of three ways, and in fifty-six patients the results were evaluated six to fifteen months after injury. 2. It is concluded: a ) that ligamentous injuries at the foot and ankle frequently produce a proprioceptive deficit affecting the muscles of the injured leg; b ) that such a deficit is responsible for the symptom of "giving way" of the foot; and c ) that the… Expand

Instability of the foot after injuries to the lateral ligament of the ankle.

  • The Journal of bone and joint surgery. British volume
  • 1965
TLDR
It is concluded that the pathological process which is usually responsible for functional instability of the foot after a lateral ligament injury is at present unknown. Expand
Reconstruction for lateral ligament injuries of the ankle.
TLDR
Seventy-six patients with chronic lateral instability of the ankle were treated by a simple reconstructive operation, namely, a subperiosteal release on the distal part of the lateral malleolus, including the insertion of both the anterior talofibular and the calcane ofibular ligaments. Expand
Conservative treatment of injury to the fibular ligaments of the ankle.

  • British journal of sports medicine
  • 1982
Fifty-one patients with fibular ligamentous injury of the ankle are presented. The treatment consisted of complete non-weight-bearing of the affected foot by use of elbow crutches for three weeks.Expand
Clinical and social status following injury to the lateral ligaments of the ankle. Follow-up of 144 patients treated conservatively.
TLDR
There was a close correlation between pain on movement in the ankle joint and residual symptoms which were, incidentally, unrelated to the degree of primary talar tilt, which indicates that some symptom-free patients have in fact latent symptoms, elicited only by fairly severe strain. Expand
Chronic lateral instability of the foot
TLDR
It is deducted that chronic lateral instability of the foot is a very common problem, and the great majority of the patients who note these complaints is not incapacitated by them. Expand
Long-Term Functional Outcome After Primary Repair of the Lateral Ligaments of the Ankle
TLDR
Prospective, randomized studies are needed to clarify if nonopera tive treatment (i.e., early controlled mobilization) would give similar long-term results as primary repair of ruptured lateral liga ments of the ankle. Expand
Chronic instability of the foot and foot geometry: a radiographic study
TLDR
The talocalcaneal angle was found to be a less appropriate parameter in measuring the longitudinal foot arch in patients with chronic instability and a control group. Expand

  • 1976
TLDR
It is the author's opinion that rigid immobilization of the more significant injury is necessary in order to return the participant to active athletics within a reasonable length of time. Expand
Investigation of Lateral Ankle Ligament Reconstruction
TLDR
It was found that each of the three procedures had a surprisingly high incidence of postoperative pain, and subtalar motion was affected by the type of reconstructive procedure, and although this fact had been theorized in the literature, it had not been documented by objective data. Expand
Chronic lateral instability of the ankle. A method of reconstruction using the Achilles tendon.
TLDR
The method described is a good alternative to other methods of ligamentous reconstruction and stabilizes the subtalar joint and corrects recurrent subluxation of the peroneal tendons. Expand
