Ankle fracture is frequent and its number is increasing. In Canada, surgical treatment of these lesions is advised and the options currently used all have in common a rigid fixation of the syndesmosis which results in residual stiffness and a high level of secondary surgery, mostly to remove the implant.
The purpose of the study is to compare the treatment of ankle syndesmotic rupture by a dynamic fixation to a static fixation suggesting that the dynamic fixation method will improve the Olerud-Molander functional score of more than 15 points at the 3 months follow-up.

Effect of the screw type (S2-alar-iliac and iliac), screw length, and screw head angle on the risk of screw and adjacent bone failures after a spinopelvic fixation technique: A finite element analysis.
Spinopelvic fixations involving the S2-alar-iliac (S2AI) and iliac screws are commonly used in various spinal fusion surgeries. This study aimed to compare the biomechanical characteristics, specifica...
Anterior cervical trans-pedicle screw fixation was introduced to overcome some of the disadvantages associated with anterior cervical corpectomy and fusion. In vitro biomechanical studies on the trans...
Intra-articular distal humeral fractures involving both columns require double-plate fixation. In orthogonal plate fixation, screws from the medial plate reach the radial column, while screws from the...
We aimed to compare the clinical efficacy of three different internal fixation methods, i.e. proximal femoral locking compress plate (PF-LCP), proximal femoral nail antirotation (PFNA) and dynamic hip...
Insertion of an implant into the bone of the mandible or maxilla. The implant has an exposed head which protrudes through the mucosa and is a prosthodontic abutment.
Biocompatible materials usually used in dental and bone implants that enhance biologic fixation, thereby increasing the bond strength between the coated material and bone, and minimize possible biological effects that may result from the implant itself.
Endosseous dental implantation where implants are fitted with an abutment or where an implant with a transmucosal coronal portion is used immediately (within 1 week) after the initial extraction. Conventionally, the implantation is performed in two stages with more than two months in between the stages.
