Keywords Syndesmosis injury; Rotational instability; Stabilization; Anatomic repair; InternalBraceTM; Surgical technique
Core Tip Reconstruction of unstable syndesmotic in­juries is not trivial, and there are no generally accepted treatment guidelines. The TightRope® system is reported to have advantages compared to classical syndesmotic screws. However, rotational instability of the distal fibula is not safely eliminated by use of 1 or even 2 TightRopes®. Therefore, we developed a new syndesmotic InternalBraceTM technique using SwiveLocks® for knotless aperture fixa­tion of a FiberTape® at the anatomic footprints of the injured ligaments for improved anatomic distal tibiofibular ligament augmentation to protect healing of the injured native ligaments.
