BACKGROUND Proprioceptive deficiencies, peroneal muscle weakness, varus hindfoot, and varus tibial plafond have each been implicated as a predisposing factor in recurrent ankle instability. Another predisposing factor for instability is a position of the fibula posterior to the transverse axis of the talus. This study examined the relationship of fibular position and ankle instability with anatomic dissection and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS Data were obtained from 100… CONTINUE READING
