Poster summary

Primary aim is to establish the best treatment options available for lateral ligament injury in elite athletes and assess the average time to return to physical training and return to play (RTP). Secondary aims are to find out the rate of return to the pre-injury level of competitive sports and the reasons for delayed recovery. Our results provide a guide to predict the expected time to return to training (RTP) after surgical repair of lateral ligament injuries along with associated injuries leading to delayed rehabilitation. Lateral ligament reconstruction is a safe and effective treatment for severe ruptures providing a stable ankle with a mean time of 16 weeks to return to sports. The available studies vary considerably in their metrics used for measuring patient-reported outcomes.
