The authors present 14 cases of chronic lateral instability of the ankle in 13 patients, in whom we performed ligamentoplasty using peroneus lateral brevis. The importance of careful preoperative evaluation of clinical findings as well as stress-roentgenograms and arthrographies is emphasized and a simple surgical technique is presented.

We also realize an assessment of the results obtained which are very encouraging at the present.
