BACKGROUND: Ankle instability is a common condition in professional and amateur athletes. In this study we describe a new minimally invasive arthroscopic technique for ankle instability.
METHODS: Twenty-three patients, average age of 34.52 years, were submitted to ankle arthroscopy with lateral plications for chronic ankle instability of I-II degree. Patients were analyzed using AOFAS Score, FADI Score and subjective satisfaction at time of follow-up (average 14.78 months).
RESULTS: Data at follow-up time were AOFAS 96.00, FADI 131.39. Nineteen patients (82.7 %) gave an excellent view and only 1 insufficient (4.3%). This surgical technique for capsular redundancy reduction may be indicated in the minor ankle instability, in constitutional laxity after more injuries or as a complementary element in who should be treated for chondral defects.
CONCLUSIONS: This method is not a substitute of Broström-Gould surgical technique, but is an alternative that can be employed in many diseases not disabling.
