BACKGROUND: The best treatment for fractures of the distal tibia remains controversial. Most of these fractures require surgical fixation, but the outcomes are unpredictable and complications are common. OBJECTIVES: To assess disability, quality of life, complications and resource use in patients treated with intramedullary (IM) nail fixation versus locking plate fixation in the 12 months following a fracture of the distal tibia. DESIGN: This was a multicentre randomised trial...

Malwina Kaniewska, Lynne S Steinbach, Urs Neurauter, Suzanne E Anderson
We present an uncommon imaging feature with fluid fat tracking within the tendon sheath of the flexor hallucis longus (FHL) after traumatic injury to the ankle joint. We propose a coined medical term "lipidus migrans" to define the presence of floating fat in a tendon sheath. This is due to lipohemarthrosis from intra-articular fracture of the ankle with leakage of fluid fat into the tendon sheath. Communication between the FHL tendon sheath and ankle joint can occur in up to 25% of patients. Radiologists should be aware of the presence of lipidus migrans as a potential posttraumatic complication after intra-articular ankle fracture and that fat in the tendon sheath may mimic fracture fragments or even a tendon sheath tumor...

May-Thurner syndrome (MTS) is a rare condition in which patients develop iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis owing to an anatomic variant in which the right common iliac artery overlies and compresses the left common iliac vein against the lumbar spine. Data regarding lower extremity trauma in patients with previously diagnosed MTS are rare. We discuss the operative approach for ankle trauma occurring 3 weeks after endovascular surgery for the treatment of MTS.

REVIEW
S F Baumbach, W C Prall, M Braunstein, W Böcker, S Polzer, H Polzer
Fractures of the base of the fifth metatarsal bone are one of the most frequent fractures to the foot and ankle. Despite the high frequency and although a number of studies are now available, treatment frequently does not follow the available evidence. Among the reasons is the inconsistent terminology used and that the studies available are neglected. The aim of this review is to present the current classifications, the available treatment studies and to derive evidence-based treatment recommendations. The term "Jones fracture" has been used inconsistently for different fracture entities and should, therefore, not be used anymore...

Accessory ossicles are normal variants that are frequently seen but often overlooked or misdiagnosed. Commonly seen at the foot and ankle, they may be mistaken for fracture fragments or loose bodies, or not be recognised as a cause of the patient's symptoms. This pictorial essay aimed to review commonly encountered accessory ossicles of the foot and ankle by highlighting anatomic landmarks and associated pathologic processes through the use of both basic and advanced imaging modalities, in an effort to increase awareness of these clinical entities...

Introduction When surgeons operate on the foot and ankle, the most common complication that may arise is injury of the cutaneous nerves. The sural nerve (SN) is potentially at risk of being injured when treating fractures involving the distal tibia using the posterolateral approach. The aim of this study was to evaluate how differences in length and position of the surgical treatment of fractures involving the distal tibia can affect the risk of SN injury. Materials and Methods The study involved 40 healthy volunteers (n=80 lower limbs)...

A R Vosoughi, M A Erfani
Peroneal tendon dislocation in association with medial malleolus fracture is a very rare traumatic injury to the ankle. A 19-year old male patient was referred after injury sustained in a motorcycle accident with car, with concomitant traumatic peroneal tendon dislocation and medial malleolus fracture. The possible mechanism of this unusual injury could have been sudden external rotation force to the pronated foot in full dorsiflexed position of the ankle. Diagnosis of peroneal tendon subluxation or dislocation should be carefully evaluated in patients with single medial malleolus fracture...

The posterior malleolus of the ankle is the object of increasing attention, with considerable enthusiasm for CT scanning and surgical fixation, as expressed in a recent annotation in The Bone & Joint Journal. Undoubtedly, fractures with a large posterior malleolar fragment that allow posterior talar subluxation from the mortise are served better by fixation. However, in all other situations, the existing literature does not support this widespread change in practice. The available biomechanical evidence shows that the posterior malleolus has little part to play in the stability or contact stresses of the ankle joint...
