Dear Annals of Medical Research Readers

As of the end of March 2021, I have started to work as Chief Editor at Annals of Medical Research. Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 28 years.  Our Journal, which is online as an open access journal with monthly free access, is being scanned in many national and international indexes (ULAKBIM TR Dizin, Turkish Medline, EBSCO, Google Scholar, etc.). I would like to thank the Editors before me who contributed to this level. Our primary goal is to ensure the maintenance of this good state of the journal and to ensure that it is scanned in prestigious international indexes (Pubmed Central, SCI-Expended, etc.). In order to achieve these goals, it depends on the original research articles that can be cited and the articles published in our Journal to be cited sufficiently in other international journals. The contributions of our readers, reviewers and authors in achieving this goal are of great importance.

I hope to announce the news that we have reached our goals as soon as possible.

Abstract

Aim: Morphology of the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis plays an important role in the pattern of ankle fracture and reduction strategy. This study aimed to describe the normal morphology of the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis in a Turkish population.
Materials and Methods: All analyzes were based on 349 computed tomography images, contributed by 265 male and 84 female patients. The following features were measured on axial images: the depth of the incisura fibularis, anterior tibiofibular depth, posterior tibiofibular depth, anterior-posterior length of the fibula, mediolateral width of the fibula, version of the incisura fibularis, anterior tubercle length, posterior tubercle length, and tibiofibular engagement. All measure ts were performed by an orthopedic surgeon and an experienced musculoskeletal radiologist, repeated at a 2-week interval.
Results: The most common morphology of the incisura fibularis was concave (C-shape, depth >4 mm, 66.5%), followed by a shallow morphology (I-shape, depth 4 mm, 18.3%), and r-shape (15.2%). Significant between-sex differences were identified for depth of the incisura fibularis, posterior tibiofibular depth, anterior-posterior length of fibula, mediolateral width of the fibula, anterior tubercle length, posterior tubercle length, tibiofibular engagement, and incisura fibularis height. Across the three morphologies (C-, I- and r-shape), there was a significant difference in the anterior tibiofibular depth, anterior-posterior length of the fibula, degree of retroversion of the incisura fibularis, and extent of tibiofibular engagement (p0.001).
Conclusions: Knowledge of the variability in the morphology and measurements of the features of the incisura fibularis can be useful in the diagnosis of syndesmosis injury and lowering the risk of malreduction during surgery of ankle fractures among Turkish individuals.

Keywords: Incisura fibularis; malreduction; morphology; shape; syndesmosis
