Abstract

PURPOSE: We try to retrospectively analyze the clinical results of the modified Chrisman-Snook procedure for chronic ankle instability.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
From November 1997 to April 2006, thirty-one patients who underwent modified Chrisman- Snook procedure for chronic ankle instability were analyzed. All patients were male and the mean age was 31 years. The follow-up period averaged 48 months. We evaluated the clinical results measured by Hasegawa method.
RESULTS
Among them, there were soldiers in 11, socker players in 6, patients who weigh more 80 kg in 5. And there were 9 patients who previously underwent modified Brostrom procedure for chronic ankle instability. The clinical results were rated as excellent in 29, fair in 2 who did not cooperate with postoperative rehabilitation program. There were complications of 2 cases of irritation of the sural nerve and recurrence respectively, 1 case of wound problem.
CONCLUSION
