Techniques in Foot & Ankle Surgery: March 2010 - Volume 9 - Issue 1 - p 29-31 doi: 10.1097/BTF.0b013e3181d11d5b Buy Metrics Abstract The modified Broström procedure is a widely accepted technique to address chronic lateral ankle instability. Many variations of the procedure have been described in the literature, including soft tissue imbrication, fixation through fibular bone tunnels, and suture anchors. Suture anchors have proven to be effective and have gained wide acceptance over the last decade; however, some patients have reported significant pain and irritation arising from the prominent subcutaneous suture knots. The technique presented here uses the modified Broström procedure with knotless suture anchors to prevent the problems associated with subcutaneous knot irritation. © 2010 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
