One hundred and ninety seven patients who underwent operative fixation of an ankle syndesmotic injury were randomized to receive routine removal (n=93) or on-demand removal (104) of their syndesmotic screw after surgery. The primary outcome was function as measured by the Olerud-Molander Ankle Score (OMAS). Secondary outcomes of interest included pain, range of motion and complications.
