ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Weber Class C Ankle Fracture

History: 26 y/o male presented to Emergency Department with a swollen ankle after “slipping” on a gravel driveway.

Findings: Comminuted fracture of the distal shaft of the fibula and avulsion fracture of the posterior tibial malleolus with subluxation of the mortise joint. Soft tissue swelling noted posterior to the distal tibia and fibula.

Ddx: Ankle inversion injury, requiring classification in the Weber Ankle Classification System

Exam: Left distal lower extremity with swelling and pain on palpation. 2+ dp pulse. Skin intact. Patient unable to bear weight secondary to pain.

No MeSH data available.


The Weber Type B fracture, as seen in this patient, occurs by one of two mechanisms.  The more common is a supination-external rotation injury, which represents 70-75% of all ankle fractures.  The less common mechanism is a pronation-abduction injury, which is often associated with skin necrosis or laceration over the fracture.
