Current Concepts in Ankle Fracture Management.

Ankle fractures are one of the more common musculoskeletal injuries that are treated by foot and ankle specialists. A thorough understanding of managing these injuries requires the ability to differentiate between stable and unstable fractures. The current literature supports the nonoperative management of stable Weber B ankle fractures, whereas unstable fractures have much better outcomes with surgical intervention. Specifically, we review the fixation strategies for the lateral, medial, and posterior malleolar fractures respectively. Finally, we discuss the current trends in postoperative management of some of the more common fracture patterns, and the safety in early weight-bearing protocols.
