Ankle Fractures

Ankle fractures occur in the medial or posterior malleolus of the tibia and / or the lateral malleolus of the fibula. These fractures can be stable or unstable. The diagnosis is made by X-rays and sometimes MRI. The treatment usually takes place by plaster or a plaster shoe in stable fractures and often open reduction and internal fixation for unstable fractures.

Ankle fractures are common and can arises in a variety of ways, but an inversion injury during the race or jumping is most common.

The treatment usually takes place by plaster or a plaster shoe in stable fractures and often open reduction and internal fixation for unstable fractures. Ankle fractures are common and can arises in a variety of ways, but an inversion injury during the race or jumping is most common. The ankle structures form a ring, the tibia and fibula with the talus and connects the calcaneus. Within the ring, the stability is provided by two bones: the medial malleolus of the tibia and fibula of the lateral malleolus dual band apparatuses: Medial, the deltoid ligament;. lateral, mainly the ligaments. talofibular anterior or posterior and ligament. calcaneofibulare- ligaments of the ankle.). Often fractures the ring is affected in several places; z. B. concerned only a bone, a belt may be affected with the same time and considerable. If fractures involve ? 2 of the structures that stabilize the ring of the ankle, the ankle is unstable. Cleavage of the medial ligament. Deltoid also causes instability. The proximal fibula may also be broken (hereinafter Maisonneuve fracture) when the inner ankle is broken, the (connection between the tibia and talus) is open mortise, and the distal fibula is not broken; without a fracture of the distal fibula, the joint can only be destroyed when the interosseous ligament tears between the tibia and fibula, which sometimes happens when the proximal fibula breaks. Ligaments of the ankle. Pain and swelling first appear at the injury site, then often vague expanding around the ankle.

Certain criteria (eg. As “Ottawa Ankle Rules” Imaging methods) are often used to avoid X-rays in patients who probably do not have a fracture. Fractures are clearly on Röntgenbildernn generally.
