Abstract

An isolated rupture of the posterior deep part of the deltoid ligament is a rare injury. In case of bony avulsion, most of these lesions heal by fibrous union and pseudarthrosis. In case of a persisting painful posteromedial swelling, CT scan can confirm the avulsion. The avulsion fragment can be successfully removed by means of a two-portal hindfoot approach. The anatomy, trauma mechanism, history and physical examination, therapeutic options, and operative technique for endoscopic treatment by means of a two-portal hindfoot approach are given.
