Abstract

BACKGROUND: The effects of changes in distal tibiofibular joint (DTFJ) congruence on clinical and functional outcomes are unclear in patients operated on for ankle fractures. The present study aims to evaluate the relationship between changes in DTFJ congruence and clinical and functional outcomes in the short-term follow-up of the patients operated on for ankle fractures.
