Abstract

Optimal screw fixation of the syndesmosis is difficult. We introduce a novel technique using a targeting drill guide for centroidal screw fixation of a syndesmosis to ensure a reproducible and optimal screw trajectory for syndesmosis fixation. By using a drill guide for anterior cruciate ligament surgery and intraoperative fluoroscopy, syndesmosis fixation enables reproducible fixation along an individual centroidal axis.
