3,5) The proximal tibiofibular articulation is synovial; more distally the fibula is firmly joined to the tibia by the tibiofibular syndesmosis
with interosseous foramina and proximal and distal neurovascular bundles.

Analysis of the stress and displacement distribution of inferior tibiofibular syndesmosis injuries repaired with screw fixation: a finite element study, PLoS One, 8(12): e80236.
Distal tibiofibular syndesmosis injuries are usually associated with ankle fractures, especially common in Denis B and C fractures.
We have performed the biomechanical testing for the SEH, and cyclic axial loadings were applied to specimens with the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis injuries fixing with the SEH at 2, 5, 8, and 12 weeks.

in professional football players: a sequela of the syndesmotic ankle sprain," Foot and Ankle International, vol.
When the talus is maximally dorsiflexed, the tibiofibular syndesmosis
spreads, and the wider portion of the talar articular surface locks into the ankle mortise, allowing little or no rotation between the talus and the mortise.
Anatomy of the tibiofibular syndesmosis
and its clinical relevance.
Inversion ankle sprains seldom present a diagnostic dilemma to the experienced practitioner; however injuries to the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis
often go unnoticed.
MRI findings associated with distal tibiofibular syndesmosis
Ligamentous ankle injuries occur in one of three regions: lateral, medial, or at the tibiofibular syndesmosis
