Hi,
Syndesmosis ankle injuries are less common than lateral ankle injuries, are difficult to evaluate, have a long recovery period, and may disrupt normal joint functioning.
Stability of the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis is necessary for proper functioning of the ankle and lower extremity.

Keywords: high ankle sprain, inferior tibiofibular joint, etiology of ankle injury.

You can code 845.03
