A new operation for chronic lateral ankle instability

, : A new operation for chronic lateral ankle instability. Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. British Volume 77(1): 55-59

We have treated 45 patients (47 ankles) for chronic lateral instability by a new reconstructive procedure. The operation includes lateral shift of the entire lateral capsule-ligament complex and proximal advancement of the talocalcaneal ligament and the inferior extensor retinaculum. We reviewed 39 patients (39 ankles) at a mean of 4.6 years (2 to 7) after operation. There were 29 men and 10 women with an average age of 27 years (19 to 43); 11 of them were competitive college-level athletes and 28 were recreational athletes. The functional rating was excellent in 26 patients, good in 8, fair in 3 and poor in 2. Thirty-six patients (92%) were satisfied with the result and 34 (9 of 11 college-level athletes and 25 of 28 recreational athletes) have been able to return to their preinjury level of sport. At the last review, there had been only three episodes of recurrent ankle instability, all in recreational athletes; none had required further surgery. The unsatisfactory results were associated with pre-existing degenerative changes in the ankle.
