Background: The Chertsey test has been recently defined as an intraoperative test for the detection of the syndesmotic injuries by the application of intra-articular contrast. However, no study has investigated the reliability and comparative analysis of the Chertsey test. The purpose of this study was to explore the diagnostic accuracy of the Chertsey test in predicting syndesmosis instability of the injured ankle, with correlation to preoperative computed tomography (CT) findings.
