There was an 85% rate of radiographic lucency or lysis, a 45% rate migration or subsidence of components (most commonly the talus), a 20% rate of syndesmotic delayed union, and an 8% rate of syndesmotic nonunion.
While the talar component has evolved over time to become broader to allow for bony support and in-growth, persistent issues with syndesmotic fusion and high rates of radiographic failure have hindered the long-term success of this system.
In published studies, the STAR[TM] demonstrates lower rates of radiolucency and component migration, has lower failure rates at greater than 10-year follow-up, and avoids the complications related to syndesmotic arthrodesis.
When one or more of these radiographic measurements is abnormal, a syndesmotic injury may be present.
The tibiofibular ligaments are well visualized, and as a result, a diagnosis of tibiofibular syndesmotic injury can be made with confidence.
The AITF ligament is the most commonly injured and the most consistently visualized syndesmotic ligament on MRI examinations of the ankle (Figure 8).
If the tibiofibular recess fills with fluid or gadolinium greater than a height of 1 cm, this is diagnostic of either an acute or chronic syndesmotic injury.
In these instances, a stress view is required to assess the need for syndesmotic fixation.
Ankle mortise stability in Weber C: indications for syndesmotic fixation.
Ebraheim and coworkers (11) showed that all tibiofibular diastases of 2 or 3 mm created in a cadaveric model could be seen on CT, while plain radiographs missed all of the 2 mm diastases and half of the 3 mm diastases, showing that CT is much more sensitive for the detection of minor syndesmotic injuries.
When a syndesmotic injury is suspected clinically but not confirmed on conventional radiographs, a stress view may be obtained.
Multiple biomechanical studies have sought to locate the optimal site for syndesmotic fixation.
