Collapse Box


Proximal tibiofibular instability is a rarely reported clinical entity in children. In this case report, we describe such a case in an 8-year-old boy successfully stabilized using a minimally invasive technique with a Tightrope device. The child remained pain free and asymptomatic at 2 years of follow-up. The surgical technique is described as well as potential complications and a review of the literature.
