* A Grade II injury is associated with a partial syndesmotic disruption, typically with partial tearing of the AITFL and interosseous ligament.
At least 1 randomized controlled trial (RCT) investigated the utility of platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections around the injured AITFL in the setting of an acute syndesmotic injury.
The force transmits laterally with the talus externally rotating and pushing the fibula, stretching the AITFL until rupture occurs.
However, Nielson and colleagues (15) demonstrated that tibiofibular clear space, as seen on the AP radiograph, had no correlation with ligament injury on MRI, and also that tibiofibular overlap measured on AP or mortise views was not associated with injury to either the AITFL or PITFL on MRI.
