Example text

Frequent inhomogeneous signal intensity in the inferior part of the spring ligament at the sustentaculum tali is caused by fatty tissue and should not be mistaken for a tear. ● All portions of the spring ligament cannot be seen at arthroscopy. The superomedial component is most easily evaluated. This may lead to discrepant findings in which arthroscopy shows an intact ligament while MRI demonstrates a tear. Examination Technique A spring ligament injury is best evaluated in axial oblique and coronal PD-weighted fat-sat MR sequences.

Chronic instability is treatable by an anatomic reconstruction with a peroneus longus graft. Prognosis, Complications Chronic instability or stabilization in a faulty position is associated with an increased incidence of degenerative joint changes. Spring Ligament Injury Definition A spring ligament injury is a tear of the plantar calcaneonavicular ligament. This type of injury has a high association with injuries of the posterior tibial tendon and deltoid ligament. The spring ligament is sometimes called the “flatfoot ligament” because it stabilizes the arch and its injury may lead to flattening of the medial pedal arch.

23 Ankle and Hindfoot Fig. 4 a, b Subperiosteal hematoma in a 15-year-old boy following ankle torsion trauma with suspected syndesmotic and lateral ligament injuries. a Coronal PD-weighted fat-sat image shows elevation of the periosteum by a subperiosteal hematoma (arrows) proximal to the epiphyseal plate of the distal fibula, which has not yet closed. Minimal edema is noted about the distal fibula with no signs of epiphyseal plate injury. The lateral ligaments are intact. b Axial T2-weighted image shows subperiosteal hematoma along the lateral aspect of the fibula (arrow).
