Maisonneuve Fracture

Storm ESS - MedPix (2006)

ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Maisonneuve Fracture

History: Twisting injury to the ankle. Cannot bear weight. Pain also laterally, just below the knee.

Findings: Diffuse soft tissue swelling. Communited fracture of the proximal fibula metadiaphysis. Minimally-displaced posterior distal tiba fracture. Medial and lateral malleoli are intact. Possible old healed ligamentous injury to lateral malleolus. Distal syndesmosis not wide. Mortise symmetric / talar dome intact.

Ddx: -Dupuytrens's Fracture -Maisonneuve Fracture -Synchronous, isolated proximal fibular & posterior malleolar fx.

Dxhow: Classic constellation of roentgen findings and concordant history.

Exam: Unstable ankle.

No MeSH data available.


AP view of the proximal tibia and fibula demonstrates a communited fracture of the proximal fibular metadiaphysis.  To achieve this fracture, the rotational force ascended up the interosseous ligament from the ankle, implying its disruption as well.
