Several taping techniques described by Brian Mulligan have been presented, including techniques for tennis elbow and the inferior tibiofibular joint subluxation commonly seen in the recurrent ankle sprain population.
This type of luxation has not been described in dogs or birds, and requires rupture of the cruciate ligaments, tibiofibular ligament, and the interosseus ligament, without damage to the lateral collateral ligament.

DIAGNOSIS: Acute distal tibiofibular syndesmotic injury of the left ankle, frequently referred to as a high ankle sprain.
It is also important to evaluate the integrity of the anterior inferior tibiofibular (ATF) and the posterior inferior tibiofibular (PTF) ligaments.
Choi and coworkers (6) used the Ilizarov method to simultaneously correct the lower leg and clubfoot deformities of a 5-year-old male and an 8-year-old male, both of whom had congenital inferior tibiofibular diastasis (probably Weber type II (1)).
It is also possible that the anatomical arrangement of the bones such as a positional fault at the inferior tibiofibular joint (Kavanagh 1999), plus the nature of the origin and insertion of the muscles on the bone at a particular moment through the range of motion, along with the degree of relative flexibility and strength of the surrounding muscles (Beynnon et al, 2001, Hume and Gerrard 1998) affects frontal plane ankle joint stability to a greater extent than the status of its proprioceptive feedback mechanisms.
Numerous studies investigating the distal tibiofibular joint exist in the literature, yet there is no consensus regarding the definitive surgical treatment of acute syndesmosis injuries.
Conventional radiographs and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a destructive lesion of the head of the fibula with an intact superior tibiofibular joint and an abscess surrounding the destroyed bone.
