An Alternative Strategy for Treatment of Distal Tibiofibular Syndesmotic Disruption: A Technical Note

Metal screws are the most widely used in treating syndesmotic injuries; however, failure and the rigidity of the screws can threaten the success of the treatment and increase the cost of care. We performed open reduction and internal fixation of a fibula fracture followed by fixation of the tibiofibular joint with an olive wire and one half of an external fixator.
