BACKGROUND Rupture of the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis commonly occurs with extreme external rotation. Most studies of syndesmosis injuries have concentrated only on external rotation instability of the ankle joint and have not examined other defects. HYPOTHESIS Syndesmosis injuries cause multidirectional ankle instability. STUDY DESIGN Controlled laboratory study. METHODS Ankle instability caused by distal tibiofibular syndesmosis injuries was examined using 7 normal fresh-frozen… CONTINUE READING
