Distal tibiofibular syndesmosis injuries are complex injuries that often result in extended loss of playing time for athletes. Unstable syndesmosis injuries are uniformly reduced and stabilized by numerous methods. Controversy arises from syndesmosis injuries that are stable on stress radiographs but functionally unstable with loading of the ankle during athletic activity. The authors present a case of operative fixation of a dynamically unstable syndesmosis and detail the postoperative course.
