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.
The first is replacement of all three articulations (talofibular, tibiotalar, and medial malleolar-talar) along with a fusion of the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis.
External rotation damages the tibiofibular syndesmosis by widening the mortise.
These two cases are good examples of a number of secondary findings commonly seen on MRI in association with injury to the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis.
