Brostrom Repair

Surgical Technique

Brostrom repair begins with a small incision made at the fibula’s distal tip and in-line with the ATFL (anterior talofibular ligament). The remaining ATFL is released and a rongour is utilized on the distal fibula to prepare the attachment site of the ATFL.  Anchors are implanted into the distal fibula and passed through the ATFL. The ATFL is then fixated to the fibula using overhand knots.
