Гюльназарова С.В., Давтян Г.Г.

Abstract


Chronic instability of the ankle as a result of damaging distal tibiofibular syndesmosis ligaments is a frequently occurred complication of this joint injuries and requires surgical treatment. Case histories of 45 patients with chronic ankle instability of 5 months-20 years duration have been studied. Allotendografting of distal tibiofibular syndesmosis and its fixation with the Ilizarov device were performed in all the patients. The results of treatment were considered as excellent and good ones in 90 % of cases, as satisfactory ones – in 10%.
