Case description

In this video you can see the anatomy and injury conditions associated with the posterior ankle. There are many structures present at the posterior aspect of the ankle. These structures are often susceptible to injury. What are the common injuries and conditions around the posterior ankle are as follows: posterior ankle impingement (os trigonum), which is a condition common among athletes such as ballet dancers. Flexor hallucis longus tenosynovitis, condition associated with ballet dancing. Achilles Tendonitis and Achilles tendon rapture. The first one is rarely treated with surgery. However rupture is more likely to be treated by surgery, because when treated without it, the rerupture rate is high. The video contains a brief explanation of each condition.
