Abstract

Compared with lateral ankle instability, medial ankle instability has many fewer treatment strategies and fewer reconstructive options available. The best method for deltoid ligament reconstruction remains unclear. Percutaneous deltoid ligament augmentation using suture tape represents a novel alternative technique for chronic medial ankle instability.
