PATIENT PRESENTATION

A 55-year-old man was involved in a motor vehicle accident. He reported acute lower leg pain immediately after the accident. He was unable to bear weight on the foot upon exiting his vehicle. He presented with pain, swelling of the lower leg, ankle, and foot with notable hematoma. Radiographs showed a nondisplaced oblique fracture of the distal fibula. Patient referred to physical therapy 3 weeks later wearing a cam walker.

KEY FEATURES

++
Description
++

  • Fracture2

  • Any defect in continuity of the fibula

  • Displaced (fibula is moved on either side of the fracture) or nondisplaced (fibula has not moved)

  • Closed (skin is intact) or open (skin is breached)

  • Dupuytren fracture: proximal fibular fracture, involves the syndesmosis at the ankle

  • Maisonneuve fracture is a proximal fibular fracture from external rotation

++
Essentials of Diagnosis
++

  • Diagnosis usually made by clinical examination

  • May be ...
