MAKING A NEW LIGAMENT IN ANKLE SPRAIN.

A report is presented of a typical case of sprained ankle sustained by distortion in a position of supination, where rupture of the calcaneofibular ligament resulted in persistent laxity of the joint. The operative procedure consisted of suturing the ruptured ligament and fortifying it by the peroneus brevis tendon. A similar tendon-fixation operation has been suggested by Gallie for paralytic club-foot.
