The aim of the present study was to assess the functional outcome of fragility fractures of the ankle treated with a fibular locking nail. A retrospective review of 24 patients with fragility fractures treated with a fibular locking nail from January 2005 to December 2007 was performed. The fibular nail used in our study was Biomet SST (stainless steel(More)
