The mechanics involved in Danis-Weber-types B and C ankle fractures may allow the fibula to seek a shortened and externally rotated position following injury. Residual talar instability secondary to fibular malalignment may ensue if proper anatomic restoration is not achieved at the time of reduction. Evaluation of ankle incongruity may take the form of clinical, radiographic, and diagnostic techniques. Three case studies are presented in which fibular osteotomies were utilized to restore… Expand
Reconstructive Osteotomy for Ankle Malunion Improves Patient Satisfaction and Function
TLDR
The patient had been unable to walk with weight-bearing but regained the ability to walk after reconstructive osteotomy of the fibula, and functional scores for the foot and ankle were significantly improved after intervention. Expand
Delayed Reconstruction of Post Traumatic Ankle Malunion: A case report
TLDR
A 49 year old female that presented with a bimalleolar malunion, with severe lateral talar displacement and valgus position, presented to the clinic 8 months following the initial injury without complication. Expand

TLDR
Restoration of the normal anatomical alignments can restore function and minimize the onset of degeneration that will lead to severe arthrosis requiring an arthrodesis. Expand
Reconstrucción del tobillo en fracturas consolidadas en mala posición
TLDR
A direct relation between time to reconstruction and the score obtained is found and it is found that changes in ankle biomechanics produce early joint degeneration, with swelling, stiffness and gait difficulties. Expand
Fibular-Lengthening Osteotomy to Correct a Malunited Ankle Fracture Using Fresh-Frozen Femoral Head Allograft.
TLDR
This case report achieves alignment with restoration of the talocrural angle and Shenton's line of the ankle using a transfibular osteotomy and an allogeneic fresh-frozen femoral head graft to fill the resultant defect. Expand
Fibular Lengthening for Malunited Ankle Fractures
TLDR
An early experience with a simpler fibular osteotomy to correct the ankle joint alignment for malunited fibular fractures which was successful at short-term followup is presented. Expand

TLDR
A case where a TSF was used to reduce and treat a 6-week-old fracture dislocation of the ankle is described, which is described as a first for its use in neglected fracture dislocations. Expand
Reconstructive osteotomy of fibular malunion: review of the literature
TLDR
Reconstructive fibular osteotomy has been recommended to avoid or postpone sequela of posttraumatic degeneration, an ankle arthrodesis or supramalleolar osteotomy, and to formulate recommendations for clinical practice. Expand
Applications of the transfibular approach to the hindfoot: A systematic review and description of a preferred technique.
TLDR
This study provides evidence that the transfibular approach yields satisfactory results, with low complication and infection rates, for cases requiring extensile exposure of the tibiotalar joint. Expand
Realignment Surgery for Malunited Ankle Fracture
TLDR
To investigate the characteristics and the results of realignment surgery for the treatment of malunited ankle fracture, a large number of patients with mal united ankle fracture have undergone this surgery. Expand

Corrective lengthening osteotomy of the fibula.
TLDR
A series of 23 cases demonstrates that reconstructive lengthening osteotomy is well worthwhile when there is absent or minimal osteoarthritic change, irrespective of the time from the original injury. Expand
Late lengthening of the fibula for malaligned ankle fractures.
TLDR
A technique of lengthening osteotomy of the fibula for the late treatment of symptomatic malaligned or malunited fractures of the ankle can prevent progressive instability and degenerative arthritis. Expand
Precise evaluation of the reduction of severe ankle fractures.
TLDR
Three variables were found to significantly affect the final clinical results: the amount of talar displacement prior to reduction; the type of fracture; and the presence of rupture of the deltoid ligament. Expand
The key role of the lateral malleolus in displaced fractures of the ankle.
TLDR
It is concluded that the lateral malleolus is the key to the anatomical reduction of bimalleolar fractures, because the displacement of the talus faithfully followed that of the lateralmalleolUS. Expand

TLDR
The ankle is a modified hinge joint, the talus acting similar to a ball bearing within a mortice, that articulates with the talar dome. Expand

A new approach to determine the adequacy of closed reduction of ankle fractures was applied to a series of 250 cases over a 1-year period at the Naval Regional Medical Center, San Diego, California.Expand
Late revision of fibular malunion in ankle fractures.
TLDR
Late correction of the malunited fibula with diastasis of the ankle mortice is an effective means of salvaging function in a joint otherwise destined to be stiff and painful. Expand

TLDR
Twenty of the twenty-six patients who had a reconstructive surgical procedure for treatment of a malunion of a displaced fracture of the fibula were able to resume the preinjury level of activity; three had improvement in the ability to walk and in the level of functional activity, although they still had intermittent pain.

It is concluded that comparing angular measurements of the injured with the contralateral ankle provides the most accurate guide for assessing fibular length. Expand
