Abstract

A disruption of the proximal tibiofibular joint has been considered a rare and uncommon condition with only few cases reported in literature. Four types of instability or disruption of the proximal tibiofibular joint are classified in literature as subluxation, anterolateral dislocation, posteromedial dislocation, and superior dislocation. We report a case of a 26-year-old soccer player injured during a match. The diagnosis of the anterolateral proximal tibiofibular joint dislocation was established after clinical examination and was also confirmed radiologically.

The objective of this paper is to elaborate the mechanism of injury, nonoperative protocols, surgical techniques, rehabilitation schedules and sports guidelines after proximal tibiofibular joint dislocation.
