Abstract

Ankle sprains are among of the most common injuries seen in daily orthopaedic practice. Beside injuries of the lateral ligament, which is the most frequently injured single structure in the body of athletes, sprains can also affect the tibiofibular syndesmosis. These injuries are known as high ankle sprains. They can occur with or without a bony injury. In this report, we will discuss the high ankle sprain without any bony injury. These kinds of injuries are rare, but often associated with complications and are frequently misdiagnosed or undiagnosed. The purpose of this article is to provide a clear understanding of clinical tests described in the literature for testing of syndesmotic integrity.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
