Operative management of serious injury to the fibular collateral ligament of the ankle is satisfactory. Reconstruction of the late injury is best accomplished by the tenodesis of Watson-Jones, utilizing the peroneus brevis tendon as replacement tissue. Improvement in the early treatment of the severe injury can be assured by primary repair.
