This team won the Foot and Ankle Surgery journal’s 2019 Best Paper Award at the recent European Foot & Ankle Surgery Virtual Congress for a research paper titled, “The Effects of Weight Bearing on the Distal Tibiofibular Syndesmosis: A Study Comparing Weight Bearing CT with Conventional CT.” This is the first study to compare syndesmosis in patients who have had both a weight bearing and non-weight bearing CT scan. Mr. Karan Malhotra presented how the researchers found significant differences between the bone positions in the two scans.

The presenters reviewed the award winning findings, as well as a second research paper titled, “Defining Reference Values for the Normal Tibiofibular Syndesmosis in Adults Using Weight Bearing CT.” This study analyzed 100 patients’ feet with a bilateral weight bearing CT scan over 4 years. Using this cohort, the researchers established normal ranges for measurements in cross-sectional syndesmotic anatomy during weight-bearing. Mr. Shelain Patel discussed how the researchers discovered significant differences in anatomy between men and women.
