The Syndesmotic Screw: Where Does it Break?
Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery Asia Pacific
Aim and objective: There is an increasing body of evidence that syndesmotic screws following stabilization of acute syndesmotic disruption in ankle fractures can be retained if not symptomatic. Some broken screws may remain symptomatic (pain, cortical erosion) and can be difficult to remove. This study aimed to evaluate at what level the syndesmotic screw breaks and how often this occurs at a level that may lead to potential refractory complaints needing further surgical intervention.
