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.


Weber Type B fractures (see image B) include fibular fractures, typically a spiral type, occurring at the level of the syndesmosis.  There may be an associated injury to the deltoid-medial malleolus complex.
