Broström Procedure and Fibula Periosteal Turn Down Augmentation for the Ball-and-Socket Ankle Accompanying Lateral Ankle Instability: A Case Report

  • 1Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Gwangju Veterans Hospital, Gwangju, Korea


We report on the case of a patient with chronic instability of the ball-and-socket ankle joint. The patient, a 21-year-old male, was diagnosed 10 years previously with chronic instability of the ball-and-socket ankle joint. He underwent Broström procedure and augmentation using a periosteal turn down from the fibula for this chronic instability despite having received conservative treatment since the diagnosis. After the procedure, the clinical symptoms of ankle instability were improved and the patient is being periodically followedup. We report on this case of using a Broström procedure as a treatment option for patients with instability of the ball-and-socket ankle joint with normal range of foot and normal ankle joint alignment without damage in the joint and cartilage.
