Ankle joint

Blood circulation disorder at the ankle joint (Osteochondrosis dissecans):


Is a circumscribed bone lesion below the articular cartilage which can end with the rejection of the affected bone as a free joint body (articular mouse) with the overlying cartilage. There remains then a joint surface defect.


The causes are mechanical factors (repetitive impulsive loads) the most likely main cause. Growth factors are often responsible for the occurrence of the disease. However, accidental influences such as strong upsets can also trigger.


Strong stress-dependent pain with movement limitation of the joint


An outpatient minimally invasive arthroscopic operation of the ankle will result in a flow of blood circulation and the corresponding healing of the affected area.

Adhesions in the lateral part of ankle (meniscoid syndrome)


By injuries to the ankle capsule in ligament injuries of the ankle, which are located in the immediate vicinity of the joint capsule, adhesions in the lateral part of the ankle can develop during the healing phase.


The patient suffers from stabbing pain in the external part of the ankle as well as instability of the ankle, especially during lateral movements (supination and pronation) in the upper part of the joint.


By an outpatient minimally invasive arthroscopic operation of the ankle, the adhesions and thickenings are optimally removed.
