Comparison of the diagnostic value of measurements of transverse syndesmotic interval and 'lambda sign' in distinguishing latent syndesmotic diastasis in chronic lateral ankle instability: a cross-sectional study of 188 cases.

Arch Orthop Trauma Surg 2022 Jun 21. Epub 2022 Jun 21.

Radiology Department, Peking University Third Hospital, No.49 North Garden Road, Haidian, Beijing, 100191, China.

Introduction: Chronic lateral ankle instability (CLAI) could accompany with latent syndesmotic diastasis (LSD), which is difficult to distinguish before surgery. Tibiofibular interval width and extravasation of joint fluid ('lambda sign') on MRI are widely used in the diagnosis of syndesmotic injury, but the reliability of these methods in distinguishing the associated LSD in CLAI was rarely studied. Our objective was to compare the diagnostic value of the measurement of the transverse tibiofibular interval and 'lambda sign' on MRI in distinguishing LSD in CLAI and to investigate the radiological predictor that best matched the intraoperatively measured syndesmotic width.

Which test is the best? An updated literature review of imaging modalities for acute ankle diastasis injuries.

J Med Radiat Sci 2022 May 3. Epub 2022 May 3.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Box Hill Hospital, Box Hill, Victoria, Australia.

Ankle diastasis injuries, or ankle syndesmotic injuries, are common among athletes who usually experience a traumatic injury to the ankle. Long-term complications are avoidable when these injuries are diagnosed promptly and accurately treated. Whilst ankle arthroscopy remains the gold standard diagnostic modality for ankle diastasis injuries, imaging modalities are still widely utilised due to the treatment having greater accessibility, being less invasive and the most cost effective.
