    "Syndesmosis injuries are rare"



    They are not rare IMO. Mild syndesmosis injuries are not blatantly obvious diagnostically, and are therefore difficult to diagnose.

    If you mean a minor diastasis, I agree that they are common. The mechanism I find is during an ankle sprain the peroneal tertius muscle contracts forcefully and damages the superior retinaculum. A subluxation of the distal tibia and fibula results which is a diastasis. I find that there is a weak peroneus tertius that responds to friction of the retinaculum from the edges medially which also corrects the subluxation.

    Regards,

    Stanley
