Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We have reviewed 11 patients after distal fibular resection for benign or malignant tumors with different techniques of reconstruction. Seven patients had normal function and four had reduced mobility, one of whom had a lateral subluxation of the talus. All the patients were without pain. After resection of the lateral malleolus without replacement the soft tissues should be reinforced.
