Use of a pointed reduction clamp placed on the distal fibula to ensure proper restoration of fibular length and rotation and anatomic reduction of the syndesmosis: a technique tip.

Abstract

Proper anatomic restoration of fibular length, rotation, and anatomic reduction of the syndesmosis can be difficult during fixation of ankle fractures. This is particularly true when the fibula is highly comminuted, which does not allow for restoration of fibular alignment by direct fracture reduction (Figure 1). Anatomic reduction of the syndesmosis has… (More)
