- Discussion:
- w/ ankle fractures that occur above the syndesmosis, the lateral and/or medial malleolus, should be fixed first;
- subsequently, look for objective evidence of syndesmotic widening;
- stabilization of syndesmosis may be achieved by placing one or two screws between tibia & fibula to hold syndesmosis in position until syndesmotic ligament healing can occur;
- syndesmotic screw is a positioning screw that is used to hold but not compress the syndesmosis;
- it is sometimes necessary to position the screw thru the fibular plate;
- in these cases, place the plate along the posterolateral fibular border, inorder to facilitate entry of the syndesmotic screw into the tibia;
