Ankle Arthroscopy for Ankle Instability

Brian M. Fisher, Jonathon D. Backus

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Ankle instability may present due to instability of the lateral ligament complex, medial deltoid ligament, or syndesmosis. Patients with ankle instability often have other secondary pathologies such as malalignment, osteochondral lesions, synovitis, peroneal tendon tears, soft tissue or bony impingement, or loose bodies which also should be addressed to optimize patient outcomes following ligament stabilization. These secondary pathologies may be not always appreciated on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and thus ankle arthroscopy has emerged as a way to not only diagnose but also directly address the intra-articular pathology.
