Abstract

This article discusses the role of ankle arthroscopy in the acute management of ankle trauma in athletes. The rate of intra-articular pathology associated with ankle trauma is high and arthroscopic treatment often has an important role to play. Its major role is in the assessment and treatment of joint surface damage, syndesmotic instability, and intra-articular fractures.
