Abstract

Many techniques have been advocated for the late surgical reconstruction of the lateral ankle ligament complex, including the use of hamstring tendon autografts. A new technique is described which attempts to restore anatomically the anterior talofibular ligament using hamstring autograft. The distal end of the graft is secured in a blind-ended tunnel in the talus without the need for transosseous tensioning. This is achieved with the use of the Bio-Tenodesis Screw System.
