Abstract

Syndesmotic injuries may occur as an isolated ligamentous disruption or with associated malleolar fractures. It is imperative these injuries be identified and managed properly to prevent any long-term dysfunction and morbidity. There are multiple surgical interventions that can be used for the treatment of acute and chronic syndesmotic injuries. Obtaining and maintaining an anatomic reduction is the key to long-term success when treating syndesmotic injuries.
