Footballer’s Ankle

Video Transcription

We are viewing from the anteromedial portal, irrigating through the posterolateral portal, and instrumenting through the anterolateral portal. Here one can clearly see the large anterior tibial spur, coming off the front of the distal tibia. We are using a 3.5mm gator resector to remove to soft tissue elements of this large anterior tibial spur. The talus is beneath us, the tibia above us. Now, a 3.5mm spherical burr has been introduced through the anterolateral portal, to allow the boney elements of the tibial spur to be resected, restoring a normal tibiotalar angle, and allowing normal range of movement to be restored to the ankle joint without pain.
