This study analyses the Brostrom procedure for secondary repair of chronic lateral ankle instability. Prior to this study there have been no biomechanical studies reporting the strength of this secondary repair method, whether using suture fixation or suture anchors. Through a biomechanical comparison of the ultimate load to failure and stiffness of the traditional Brostrom technique using only a suture repair compared with a suture anchor repair of the anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL) at time zero.
