Concomitant Proximal and Distal Tibiofibular Joint Dislocation Associated With a Tibial Shaft Fracture.
An association exists between tibial shaft fractures and ankle injuries. In addition, although uncommon, an association between tibial shaft fractures and proximal tibiofibular dislocations has also been established. A review of the previous literature resulted in one case report of a complete proximal and distal tibiofibular joint dislocation without fracture of the tibia or fibula. Here, we discuss a case of a complete proximal and distal tibiofibular syndesmotic complex dislocation associated with a tibial shaft fracture. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of this injury pattern associated with a tibial shaft fracture.
