Syndesmotic reconstruction during total ankle arthroplasty is a challenging procedure. Attempts to regain anatomic alignment of the ankle joint help to ensure appropriate implant position and may help with longevity of the prosthesis. The novel technique of syndesmosis reconstruction during INBONE total ankle arthroplasty with suture buttons is presented. One patient had a complication of a skin lesion secondary to silicone material in the suture button construction.
