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.
