Weber's three indexes were used to evaluate reduction of the ankle joint and syndesmosis in the mortise view: (1) trilateral intervals of the ankle joint should be equal and parallel, (2) the medial spike of the fibula should indicate the level of the tibial subchondral bone (no irregular Shenton's line), and (3) the contour of the lateral part of the articular surface of the talus continues as an unbroken curve to the recess in the distal fibula (Coin sign).[23],[24] The American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) Ankle-Hindfoot Score and Visual Analog Scale (VAS) score were used for functional and pain evaluation at the final follow-up of a mean of 3 years.

At the 12 months postoperative visit, the patient was satisfied with the results and was performing sports activity (AOFAS score: 91).
Regarding the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) score, all except for three patients postoperatively reached the maximum score of 100 points.
After 6 months of follow-up, the patient had a VAS score of 2 and an AOFAS score of 87.
The mean total AOFAS score was 85 out of a maximum of 100 points.

The mean AOFAS ankle-hindfoot scale score, the VISAA score, and the Arner-Lindholm standard could be refer to in Table 2.
At final follow up, patient were evaluated using AOFAS score and categorised accordingly
