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) [25].
Internal fixations of the syndesmosis were recommended by most authors to repair the associated ruptured ligaments,[sup][2] which bring about the adverse consequences of limiting the physiological micromovement of the tibiofibular joint to some extent.
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.
Ganglion cysts occur along a tendon sheath, such as the semimembranosus tendon, or near the proximal tibiofibular joint.
Synovial chondromatosis of four compartments of the knee: medial and lateral tibiofemoral spaces, patellofemoral joint and proximal tibiofibular joint.
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.
Several taping techniques described by Brian Mulligan have been presented, including techniques for tennis elbow and the inferior tibiofibular joint subluxation commonly seen in the recurrent ankle sprain population.
Proximal fibular fractures without shortening can be managed with a syndesmosis screw alone, where the screw holds the tibiofibular joint stable while the sysndesmosis heals.
A line was drawn from the mid-point of the anteroposterior dimension of the medial malleolus through the mid-point of the anteroposterior dimension of the distal tibiofibular joint.
Sprains without fracture can be further sub-classified into those which are "latent", and thus diastasis appears only with stress radiographs, and those which are "frank", necessitating that widening of the distal tibiofibular joint space be visible with unstressed radiographs.
