In this video, Dr Raynor presents how to anatomically treat proximal tibofibular (tibfib) joint instability with both non-surgical and surgical methods. He shows how to clinically examine the patient to identify the instability, as well as the surgical procedure to anatomically reconstruct the joint connection. He concludes that this is not a common injury and that it can be hard to identify, although the most common sign is anterior instability. He cautions that during the procedure the surgeon should be careful when dissecting out the peroneal nerve and to make sure the fibular head is reduced when tensioning.
Watch the surgical demonstration of an anatomic proximal tibiofibular joint reconstruction.
