Motion of the fibula relative to the tibia and its alterations with syndesmosis screws: A cadaver study

Publication year: 2011 Source: Foot and Ankle Surgery, Available online 7 December 2011 Thomas Huber, Werner Schmoelz, Andreas Bölderl BackgroundThe motion of the fibula in relation to the tibia is coupled on the motion of the talus in the ankle joint. Several authors investigated this motion with different methods. An injury of the elastic fixation of the fibula to the tibia and its treatment with the syndesmotic set screw has an impact on this motion.MethodsThe motion of the fibula relative to the tibia was measured in eight embalmed human above the knee amputated cadaver specimens using a 3D-motion analysis system
