Syndesmosis injuries involve the distal tibiofibular joint
and can disturb the regular strength of the ankle joint depending on their severity.
Stability in the distal tibiofibular joint
is maintained by the syndesmotic ligaments, which include the anterior inferior tibiofibular ligament (AITFL), the posterior inferior tibiofibular ligament (PITFL), the transverse ligament, and the interosseous ligament.
Intraoperative assessment of the stability of the distal tibiofibular joint
in supination-external rotation injuries of the ankle: Sensitivity, specificity, and reliability of two clinical tests.
Synovial cyst of proximal tibiofibular joint
is among the non-trauma reasons of peroneal nerve palsy which is rarely seen.
These fractures may present with a rotational or bending element or with talus displacement into the distal tibiofibular joint
. Either (or both) mechanisms cause syndesmotic displacement and soft-tissue injury.
The syndesmotic ligament and distal tibiofibular joint
must be kept in ideal anatomy (it may be achieved by keeping the tibiofibular intra-articular distance 2-3 mm) .
At the exit of the tunnel, it trifurcates into a deep peroneal nerve, a superficial peroneal nerve, and an articular branch, which extends to the proximal tibiofibular joint
Involvement of the lower extremities is much less common,1 and the compression of the peroneal nerve at the level of the knee and proximal tibiofibular joint
has been described scarcely.1-4 In this report, a patient with common peroneal nerve palsy due to a ganglion cyst is presented as a rare case in the light of literature.
Ganglion cysts occur along a tendon sheath, such as the semimembranosus tendon, or near the proximal tibiofibular joint
. Peri-meniscal cysts are often adjacent to the menisci and seen in the setting of a meniscal tear.
Synovial chondromatosis of four compartments of the knee: medial and lateral tibiofemoral spaces, patellofemoral joint and proximal tibiofibular joint
. Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc.
RADIOLOGIC DIAGNOSIS: This is a case of osteochondromiatosis of the proximal tibiofibular joint
with associated bone bruise and degenerative osteophytosis.
peroneii longus et brevis originate in the articular capsule of the tibiofibular joint
and the proxi-mal part of the fibula.
