Abstract

Symptomatic ankle instability will develop in upto 20% of patients after inversion injury. Although most patients can be successfully managed with rehabilitation and bracing, some will continue to suffer recurrent ankle instability with activities of daily living, work on uneven terrain, or sports. For this group of patients, we advocate direct anatomic surgical repair with the Brostrom procedure with or without its modifications.
