The Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Metrology Index (BASMI) that includes tragus-wall distance, lumbar flexion, cervical rotation, lumbar side flexion, and intermalleolar
distance was calculated.
A reference a point on the intermalleolar
was used for the final angle measurement.
Many studies have investigated several reference points both in the proximal tibial and distal limb, including the tibial tuberosity, intercondylar eminence, intermalleolar
distance, second metatarsal, dorsalis pedis artery, and extensor hallucis longus.[sup],,, Errors in the placement of the extramedullary tibial rod may be introduced by multiple factors and mainly occur at the distal tibia and ankle joint.
(4,6,16) Examples of structures that can be compressed and can cause the development of symptoms are: an os trigonum (17), a prominent posterolateral process of the talus (4), an enlarged posterior process of the calcaneus (7), the posterior intermalleolar
ligament (18), soft-tissue impingement (19), anomalous muscles (20), loose bodies, fractures of the ossicle or talar process, calcified inflammatory tissue, a low-lying flexor hallucis longus muscle belly and thickening of the capsule (7,8).
Prognostic assessments included functional status, disease activity, quality of life, spinal and hip mobility, fatigue, morning stiffness, finger to floor distance (cm), modified Schober (cm), chest expansion (cm), tragus to wall distance (cm), cervical rotation (degree), intermalleolar
distance (cm), and sacroiliitis grading by pelvic radiography (grade II: bilateral erosion, grade III: unilateral or bilateral sclerosis, grade IV: unilateral or bilateral ankylosis).
Therefore, this study employed the intermalleolar
line (IML) and ratio of fibular length to describe the SN anatomy in relation to the calcaneal tendon, LM and the SSV on both sides.

Their legs were straight and their feet formed a 30[degrees] angle relative to each other according to precise marks (intermalleolar
distance of 9 cm).
The spinal and hip mobility by the Bath AS Metrology Index (BASMI) (16) includes measures for cervical rotation, tragus to wall distance, lumbar side flexion, lumbar flexion (Schober's index) and intermalleolar
distance (score range: 0-10).
