Ankle presentation

  1. 1. Ankle Ligaments
  2. 2. Introduction□ Ankle joint: □ hinge-type synovial joint □ distal ends of tibia and fibula □ superior part of talus □ malleolar mortise□ Stable during dorsiflexion□ Unstable during plantar flexion
  3. 3. Top 3 Ankle Injuries#3: Actually, it’s only a scratch…
  4. 4. Medial Ligaments of AnkleDeltoid ligament:□ Two deep bands: □ anterior tibiotalar ligament □ tibionavicular ligament□ Two superficial bands: □ tibiocalcaneal ligament □ posterior tibiotalar ligament
  5. 5. Deep Deltoid Ligaments□ Anterior tibiotalar ligament □ from medial malleolus to anteromedial side of talus (McAlindon, n.d.)
  6. 6. Deep Deltoid Ligaments□ Tibionavicular ligament □ from medial malleolus to navicular tuberosity (McAlindon, n.d.)
  7. 7. Superficial Deltoid Ligaments□ Tibiocalcaneal ligament □ from medial malleolus to sustentaculum tali of calcaneus (McAlindon, n.d.)
  8. 8. Superficial Deltoid Ligaments□ Posterior tibiotalar ligament □ from medial malleolus to postermedial side of talus (McAlindon, n.d.)
  9. 9. Medial Ligaments of Ankle□ Limits eversion of the foot at the subtalar joint□ Limits dorsiflexion at the subtalar joint□ Limits plantar flexion at the subtalar joint (anterior tibiotalar ligament)
  10. 10. Top 3 Ankle Injuries#2
  11. 11. Lateral Ligaments of Ankle□ Ankle joint is reinforced laterally by three ligaments: □ anterior talofibular □ posterior talofibular □ calcaneofibular (Shannon, 2004)
  12. 12. Anterior Talofibular Ligament□ Lateral malleolus to the neck of the talus□ Flat and weak band□ Most commonly injured during ankle sprains (Ellis & Henderson, 1994)
  13. 13. Posterior Talofibular Ligament□ Malleolar fossa of fibula to the lateral tubercle of the talus□ Thick and strong band (D. Tyczynski, APCH 111 lecture, November 6, 2008)
  14. 14. Calcaneofibular Ligament□ Tip of lateral malleolus to lateral surface of calcaneus□ Round cord□ Often torn (eOrthopod, n.d.)
  15. 15. Lateral Ligaments of Ankle□ Dorsiflexion: □ limited by anterior talofibular ligament□ Plantarflexion: □ limited by calcaneofibular ligament and posterior talofibular ligament
  16. 16. ConclusionsBody parts most often injured in sport: □ ankles 12% □ fingers 10% □ face 9%□ Highest in basketball, ice skating & soccer
  17. 17. ConclusionsMost frequent injuries diagnosed: □ sprains/strains 29% □ fractures 21% □ abrasions 20%Ankle sprains:□ When motion of talus exceeds the limits of the joint-supporting ligaments□ Results in a stretch, tear or complete rupture of one or more of these ligaments□ Inversion, eversion, syndesmotic
