Abstract

Anatomical reduction and internal fixation of displaced lateral malleolar fractures are the cornerstone of the operative treatment of ankle fractures. The classical method of fixation is the application of one-third tubular plates laterally to the distal fibula, a technique, however, that has several disadvantages. In exceptional cases and under special circumstances we prefer a dorsal approach with the use of an antiglide plate. Indications, technique and experiences are discussed. © 1992.
