Clinical and radiological outcome of suture-endobutton versus syndesmosis screw fixation in Weber C ankle fractures
Patients treated using the suture-endobutton regained a better functional outcome and within a shorter time frame. The technique is minimally invasive, as the medial side is not opened, and allows tibiofibular micromotion whilst resisting diastasis. The need for secondary surgery for implant removal is significantly lessened. The suture-endobutton technique may become the gold standard for syndesmosis diastasis injuries.
