Primary ankle ligament augmentation versus modified Brostrom-Gould procedure: a 2-year randomized controlled trial
Background: More than 20% of patients develop chronic instability following appropriate management of an 'ankle sprain'. There is little research comparing surgical techniques. 'Anatomical' procedures, such as the modified Brostrom-Gould (MBG), are generally preferred. However, not all patients are suitable for this procedure.
