BACKGROUND: Conventionally ankle fractures have been classified using plain radiographs. Because of complex 3-dimensional anatomy and complexity of injuries, plain radiographs may not always be able to clearly depict the complete fracture pattern. There is a paucity of studies regarding the utility of computed tomography (CT) scanning in malleolar ankle fractures (MAFs). Hence, we conducted this study to further understand the role of the CT scan in MAFs. METHODS: A prospective study of 56 consecutive malleolar ankle fractures was conducted...

BACKGROUND: Open reduction and internal fixation is the standard treatment for displaced ankle fractures. However, the presence of comorbidities such as diabetes mellitus and body mass index (BMI) are associated with poor bone quality, and these factors may predict the development of postoperative complications. The study aim was to assess the role of diabetes mellitus and BMI in wound healing in patients younger than 65 years who were surgically treated for malleoli fractures. METHODS: Ninety patients, aged from 18 to 65 years old, with surgically treated ankle fracture, were retrospectively enrolled...

INTRODUCTION: The relapse rate after Ponseti method of correction has reduced in recent years which is attributable to the better appreciation of the need to achieve the correct degree of abduction. Ponseti recommended clinical 'overcorrection' of the foot to 70(0) of abduction. However, no scientific basis for this figure was found in literature. As the indications of Ponseti method extend to older children, we conducted a study to find out the amount of foot abduction to be achieved before applying a foot abduction brace in various age groups...

PURPOSE: The incidence of ankle fractures is rapidly increasing in geriatric populations. Of the 4 fracture patterns described by the Lauge-Hansen classification system, supination-external rotation (SER) accounts for most ankle fractures. This video demonstrates surgical repair of a SER type 4 ankle fracture in a geriatric patient. METHODS: SER type 4 ankle fractures are considered unstable and are generally treated with surgical fixation. After placement of plate and screws, intraoperative stress tests can be used to assess for syndesmotic widening...

BACKGROUND: Ankle fractures are among the most prevalent traumatic orthopaedic injuries. A large proportion of patients sustaining operative ankle fractures are admitted directly from the emergency department prior to operative management. In the authors' experience, however, many closed ankle injuries may be safely and effectively managed on an outpatient basis. The aim of this study was to characterize the economic impact of routine inpatient admission of ankle fractures. METHODS: A retrospective review of all outpatient ankle fracture surgery performed by a single foot and ankle fellowship-trained surgeon at a tertiary level academic center in 2012 was conducted to identify any patients requiring postoperative inpatient admission...

Assessing ankle stability in nondisplaced Lauge-Hansen supination external rotation type II injuries requires stress imaging. Gravity stress mortise imaging is routinely used as an alternative to manual stress imaging to assess deltoid integrity with the goal of differentiating type II from type IV injuries in cases without a posterior or medial fracture. A type II injury with a nondisplaced fibula fracture is typically treated with cast immobilization, and a type IV injury is considered unstable and often requires operative repair...

Irreducible ankle fracture-dislocations are very rare entities. The present case report demonstrates an unusual finding of tibialis posterior and flexor digitorum longus tendons interposed in the tibiofibular joint impairing successful closed reduction of ankle fracture-dislocation. A 45-year-old patient presented with a bimalleolar pronation-external rotation ankle fracture-dislocation after a motorcycle accident. Attempts to perform closed reduction before surgery were unsuccessful. Subsequent urgent open reduction and internal fixation surgical management revealed interposition of the tibialis posterior and flexor digitorum longus tendons in the tibiofibular joint...

Ankle fractures with an associated posterior tibialis tendon (PTT) rupture are rare injuries and have only been described in a number of case reports. These prior reports include patients that had an open fracture and/or an associated medial malleolar fracture component. In this unique case report, we present a patient that sustained a closed bimalleolar-equivalent ankle fracture/dislocation without medial malleolar involvement which was irreducible due to a PTT rupture and subsequent distal segment interposition in the tibiotalar joint...

INTRODUCTION: Idiopathic clubfoot is one of the most common and oldest congenital foot anomalies. There are controversies regarding its optimum management protocol and methodologies to be employed for its functional outcome evaluation. This paper attempts to propose a simple, reasonable and easily reproducible technique of podography for clinical and functional evaluation of clubfoot treated by the popular Ponseti technique. AIM: To compare the Foot Bimalleolar (FBM) angle method (podography) and radiography with respect to management of idiopathic clubfoot by Ponseti's Technique and its functional evaluation...

A cross sectional descriptive study was conducted at different areas of Mymensingh (Haluaghat, Vatikashor and Kachijhuly) from July 2015 to June 2016 on 101 Bangladeshi Garo people. Among them 60 were male and 41 were female. Sample collection was done by nonrandom purposive sampling technique. Mixed ethnicity and any kind of foot deformity resulting either from congenital or physical injury were excluded to construct standard measurement for Garo ethnicity. Bimalleolar breadth was measured using slide calipers...

A 53-year-old woman underwent arthroscopic ankle debridement for posttraumatic arthrofibrosis 2 years following a bimalleolar ankle fracture. Twelve months postarthroscopy, the patient returned to physical therapy with a 2-week history of pain and prominent swelling to her anterior ankle. Urgent follow-up was arranged with an orthopaedic surgeon, who ordered a radiograph and magnetic resonance imaging, which demonstrated a large heterogeneous mass. Doppler ultrasound was also ordered and confirmed the mass to be a pseudo-aneurysm of the anterior tibial artery...

The present retrospective cohort study assessed the association of body mass index (BMI) with the pattern of ankle fractures using 2 classifications systems. Of the 1011 consecutive patients who underwent surgery for ankle fractures in 2 hospitals from January 2009 to December 2011, 837 had a classifiable fracture according to 1 of 2 classification systems and complete information available for covariates. The association of BMI, adjusted for age, sex, corticosteroid use, diabetes, and smoking status with having a more proximal fibula fracture (Weber class A to C) and an increasing number of malleoli involved (uni-, bi-, or trimalleolar) was assessed using multivariable ordered logistic regression analysis...

Ankle fractures requiring open reduction and internal fixation vary in severity from unimalleolar fractures to bimalleolar/trimalleolar (BT) fractures to pilon fractures. Consequently, the postoperative outcomes with these surgeries can vary. Most previous studies of these injuries had small sample sizes, studied a single risk factor or adverse event, or did not compare different injuries by severity. The purpose of the present study was to describe and compare the patient characteristics and postoperative outcomes of 2 high-energy ankle fractures: BT and pilon fractures...

INTRODUCTION: Ankle fracture is the most common intra-articular fracture of a weight-bearing joint and accounts for 9% of all fractures. Ankle fractures are classified into 3 subgroups: unimalleolar, bimalleolar, and trimalleolar fractures. Accurate reduction and stable internal fixation is necessary in bimalleolar fractures; otherwise, it may lead to posttraumatic painful restriction of movements or osteoarthritis. The purpose of this study is to assess the functional outcome and results of treatment of neglected bimalleolar fracture...

We conducted a study to determine the incidence of syndesmotic injury and stabilization within various ankle fracture patterns along with the rate of syndesmotic implant removal. All data were obtained from a publicly available for-fee healthcare database, the PearlDiver Patient Records Database. Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes were used to search the database for cases of fixation of lateral malleolus, bimalleolar, and trimalleolar fractures in addition to syndesmotic fixation and implant removal...
