Foot and ankle pathology represents a highly prevalent group of pathology, particularly in sports Medicine. Ankle sprain is even the most frequent injury during sports activity. This way it represents a highly prevalent problem with significant social-economic impact. This population is frequently associated to a high-demand profile and has particular expectations that must be considered. Arthroscopic approach enables to lower the surgical aggression while dealing with several concomitant lesions at the same time (e.g. ankle instability, osteochondral defects; anterior or posterior impingement). Arthroscopy has recently gained further indications around the ankle such as arthroscopic-assisted fracture repair. However, the principal of minimally invasive surgery is mandatory even when arthroscopy is neither indicated nor possible.
