OBJECTIVES The Lauge-Hansen classification system was designed to predict the mechanism and ligament injury patterns of ankle fractures on the basis of x-rays. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of these predicted injury sequences using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in a series of patients with ankle fractures. DESIGN Retrospective cohort. SETTING Two university level 1 trauma centers. PATIENTS Fifty-nine patients with operative ankle fractures who were evaluated… CONTINUE READING
