Abstract

We reviewed 14 patients with chronic lateral instability of the ankle treated by Colville's technique between 1996 and 2001. The mean patient age was 25 (20-35) years and all were men. The mean period between injury and surgery was 25 (18-32) months, and the mean follow-up was 20 (14-32) months. Twelve of the results were excellent and two were good according to the criteria of Chrisman and Snook. All patients returned to normal daily activity levels at an average of 6 months following surgery.
