The distal tibiofibular syndesmosis is disrupted when an injury forces apart the distal tibiofibular joint.
Brookes' team-mate Elliot Daly suffered a syndesmosis injury in December 2017 against La Rochelle.
Ankle fractures are one of the most common injuries treated operatively by orthopedic surgeons.[1],[2] Pronation-external rotation (PER) injuries or Weber C type fractures, especially PER-4 fractures, are unstable ankle fractures that are associated with the incidence of a complete rupture of the syndesmosis at the distal tibiofibular joint.[3],[4],[5] It is generally agreed that these injuries benefit from obtaining and maintaining an anatomically stable fixation, including the syndesmotic fixation.[6]
[2] also demonstrated improved results by using 2 quadricortical screws for syndesmosis fixation, as well as patient compliance with treatment programs.
He started against Plymouth and Wolves in the FA Cup, the latter a chastening defeat in which he ruptured his syndesmosis - the point just above the ankle where the tibia and the fibula meet.
Additionally, the FlexThread Fibula Pin is compatible with either screw or flexible fixation of the syndesmosis joint as needed, said the company.
(3,5) The proximal tibiofibular articulation is synovial; more distally the fibula is firmly joined to the tibia by the tibiofibular syndesmosis with interosseous foramina and proximal and distal neurovascular bundles.
Five major injuries (dislocated shoulder (NYC), two ankle syndesmosis sprains (NYC), fractured eye socket (SS), MCL tear (NYC); three of which required surgery) suffered in the final four rounds amounted to eight recorded games missed.
Syndesmosis injuries may be roughly defined in three groups, as mild, moderate, and serious.
A coalition, or bar, is a bony ("synostosis"), cartilaginous ("synchondrosis"), or fibrous ("syndesmosis") connection between two or more bones.
