The syndesmosis comprises of the anterior inferior tibiofibular ligament, the interosseous membrane, and the posterior inferior tibiofibular ligament.
Stability in the distal tibiofibular joint is maintained by the syndesmotic ligaments, which include the anterior inferior tibiofibular ligament (AITFL), the posterior inferior tibiofibular ligament (PITFL), the transverse ligament, and the interosseous ligament.
A juvenile Tillaux fracture is a type of Salter Harris III fracture in which there is an avulsion of the anterolateral distal tibial epiphysis at the insertion of the anterior tibiofibular ligament. (37) The fracture is caused by a supination-eversion or external rotation injury.
Moreover, only those with the oblique or spiral fibular fracture line more than 5 cm above the tibial plafond were included because the interosseous tibiofibular ligament was 49.4 mm (45.4-53.3 mm) proximal to the center of the plafond to the tibia.[20] The exclusion criteria included (i) Maisonneuve fractures;[21] (ii) fractures that were associated with ipsilateral hindfoot, midfoot, or limb fractures; (iii) open fractures; (iv) previous ipsilateral ankle injuries and deformities; (v) pediatric fractures (when <14 years of age).{Figure 1}
This joint is held together by the anteroinferior tibiofibular ligament (AITFL), posterior inferior tibiofibular ligament (PITFL), and interosseous ligament (IOL).

Inferior tibiofibular ligament. Fibulocalcaneal ligament.
The ankle syndesmosis consists of an anterior and posterior tibiofibular ligament at the level of the plafond and an interosseous ligament located 1cm above the tibial plafond and is a condensation of the interosseous membrane (Lundberg et al 1989).
(9) The main supporting structures include cranial and caudal cruciate ligaments, joint capsule, patellar ligaments, medial and lateral collateral ligaments, and menisci." (10-12) The proximal third of the fibula has a fibrous synarthrosis with the lateral tibiotarsus by means of the interosseous ligament and is attached at the fibular crest by a bifurcated proximal tibiofibular ligament. The lateral collateral ligament originates on the femur and inserts on the fibula.
The ankle syndesmosis is made up of four ligaments, including the anterior inferior tibiofibular ligament (AITFL), the posterior inferior tibiofibular ligament (PITFL), the transverse tibiofibular ligament (TTFL), and the interosseous ligament (IOL), a distal extension of the interosseous membrane (Fig.
