(SBQ12FA.25) A 32-year-old female presents with numbness over the dorsum of her foot after ankle arthroscopy. Which of the following portals shown in Figure A have most likely attributed to this complication? Tested Concept
Anterior Arthroscopy | Ankle Platform
Two primary anterior portals are used in ankle arthroscopy: the anteromedial and anterolateral portals. The anteromedial portal is always made first since it is easy to access. This is especially true in the hyperdorsiflexed position.
Ankle Arthroscopy – an overview | ScienceDirect Topics
Ankle arthroscopy is a relatively new method of investigating and treating ankle conditions, using fiberoptic camera and small surgical tools that are inserted into the ankle joint through multiple small incisions. There are five portals through which the arthroscope can be positioned.

Portals. use a 15 blade to carefully incise thru skin only; anteromedial. initial arthroscopy is performed with the scope in the anteromedial portal, but for the majority of case, this portal will be used for instrumentation; located at the level of the ankle joint, just medial to the tibialis anterior tendon, and …
Arthroscopy of the Foot and Ankle | Musculoskeletal Key
Posterior portals are also useful during arthroscopy of the ankle (Fig. 32-7). These portals are commonly placed directly medial to, lateral to, or traversing the Achilles tendon, just distal to or at the joint line. The posterolateral portal is established in the soft spot just lateral to the Achilles tendon, 1.2 cm (0.5 inch) above the tip of the fibula.
Hindfoot Arthroscopy | Ankle Platform
The foot is placed on a triangular pad, straight down, and over the end of the operating table so that the ankle can be moved freely. The medial and lateral malleolus are marked. A probe is 'hooked' under the lateral malleolus, parallel to the footsole. The level of the probe is marked.

Complications in Ankle and Foot Arthroscopy …
Posterior ankle and hindfoot arthroscopy typically requires the use of a posterolateral and/or posteromedial portals 9 (Fig. 22-3). The use of each of these portals is associated with the risk of neurovascular injury. The posterolateral portal is routinely used and places the lesser saphenous vein and sural nerve at risk.
