Lateral ankle ligament injuries rank among the most frequently observed athletic injuries that require repair or reconstruction. However, there is a lack of quantitative data detailing the ligament attachment sites on standard radiographic views. 

This study quantitatively describes the anatomic attachment sites of the anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL), calcaneofibular ligament (CFL), and posterior talofibular ligament (PTFL) on standard radiographic views with respect to reproducible osseous landmarks. This will assist with intraoperative and postoperative assessment of lateral ankle ligament repairs and reconstructions.
