Open Dislocation of the High Ankle Joint After Fibular Graft Harvesting



Open Dislocation of the High Ankle Joint After Fibular Graft Harvesting



Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery 54(6): 1158-1161



The free microvascular fibula and soft tissue transfer has become a widely used method for reconstruction of different regions. Donor site morbidity for free fibula microvascular flaps has generally been reported to be low, or at least acceptable. We describe the case of a patient who underwent vascularized free fibula graft harvest for mandibular reconstruction. After 21 months, he had sustained an open dislocation of the left high ankle joint during recreational sports activity. We did not found such case in the published data.
