Outcomes of the Modified Broström Procedure Augmented With Suture-Tape for Ankle Instability in Patients With Generalized Ligamentous Laxity (2017)

Abstract: Background: Although recent biomechanical studies have reported mechanical superiority of augmented anterior talofibular ligament reconstruction using suture-tape, clinical evidence regarding the efficacy of suture-tape augmentation is still insufficient. This prospective study was performed to evaluate the outcomes of the modified Broström procedure augmented with suture-tape for chronic ankle instability with generalized ligamentous laxity, which has been known to be a poor prognostic factor for anatomic ligament repair.
