101 patients with an unstable syndesmotic injury associated with a malleolar fracture were randomized to syndesmotic stabilization with either a Tightrope device or two cancellous screws. Malreduction was assessed on CT at 3 months. Functional outcome and reoperation rate were followed-up for 12 months postoperatively. The incidence of malreduction and reoperation were both significantly lower in ...
