Additional radiographs of the lower extremity were ordered and they demonstrate a high fibular fracture, i.e. Weber C stage 3 also known as a Maisonneuve fracture. Final report Weber C fracture stage 4. This is un unstable ankle injury that needs surgical repair Maisonneuve Fracture. - See: - Ankle Frx. - Syndesmotic Injury. - Weber C Frx. - Discussion: - a proximal fracture of fibula resulting from external rotation; - there are variations in pattern of fibula fracture reflecting either supination or pronation. - foot may even move from relative pronation to supination during injury In such a case, you have to rule out a Maisonneuve fracture, which is a high Weber C fracture. Additional x-rays of the lower leg were taken. There is a high fibula fracture. Tillaux fracture. External rotation injury of the ankle is the most common ankle injury and can lead to a Weber B or Weber C fracture suspect injury in all ankle fractures. most common in Weber C fracture patterns. fixation usually not required when fibula fracture within 4.5 cm of plafond. up to 25% of tibial shaft fractures will have ankle injury (highest rate with distal 1/3 spiral fractures) Evaluation. measure clear space 1 cm above joint
Using the AO classification, it is considered as a type C3. 17 The Lauge-Hansen system categorizes it as a pronation-external rotation injury. 10 It is a type C in the Danis-Weber classification. 5 Pankovich describes five stages in the development of the Maisonneuve injury. 19 Stage 1 is rupture of the anterior tibiofibular ligament or. . Ankle mortise wide; Lateral talus displacement on gravity stress or external rotatio ankle fracture (Weber type C), supination-external rotation ankle fracture (Weber type B), and fracture of the proximal fibula (Maison-neuve). Diagnosis essential to avoid missing a Maisonneuve fracture and the associated syndesmotic injury. Figure 3 Normal syndesmotic relationships include a tibiofibular clear spac
Weber C fracture. This fibular fracture is above the joint line and is unstable. Maisonneuve fracture. A Maisonneuve fracture is a spiral fracture of the proximal fibula that is associated with injury to the distal tibio-fibular syndesmosis and the interosseous membrane. In addition, there is an associated fracture of the medial malleolus. The Maisonneuve fracture is a spiral fracture of the proximal third of the fibula associated with a tear of the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis and the interosseous membrane.There is an associated fracture of the medial malleolus or rupture of the deep deltoid ligament of the ankle.This type of injury can be difficult to detect. The Maisonneuve fracture is typically a result of excessive.
C Fracture above the level of syndesmosis (suprasyndesmotic) Correlates to Weber C Supination-Adduction (SA) the malleoli and palpation the entire fibula to exclude a Maisonneuve injury (associated high fibular fracture), deltoid ligament and midfoot for associated injuries  The treatment will be based on fracture alignment and stability of the ankle. There are some additional, unique types of fractures. Maisonneuve fracture. A Maisonneuve fracture, for example, involves a complete disruption of the ligaments around the ankle associated with a fracture of the fibula at the level of the knee
Medial malleolus fractures usually occur in conjunction with lateral malleolus fractures but occasionally occur as an isolated injury in P-ER or P-AB injuries (see Figure 21-2).. Obtaining radiographs of the entire tibia and fibula is important because an isolated medial malleolus may be part of a more complex Maisonneuve fracture with a proximal fibula fracture and injury to the. [Maisonneuve's fracture (author's transl)]. [Article in German] Bröhl F, Leithe J, Schilling H.

Oblique (mortise) Best for evaluating for unstable fracture or soft tissue injury. At a point 1 cm proximal to tibial plafond space between tib/fib should be ≤6mm. Lateral: Best for posterior malleolar fractures Ankle fractures can be classified according to either the AO/OTA, Danis-Weber or Lauge-Hansen classification system. The Lauge-Hansen classification is based on a rotational mechanism of injury. There are 4 categories and 13 subgroups of ankle fractures detailed in the table below
The so-called Maisonneuve fracture, a high Weber type C fracture under the fibular head, is a special case: in many such injuries, the syndesmosis and the interosseous membrane are torn and the. Two commonly used classification systems for ankle fractures include the danis weber AO C) The fracture is proximal to the ankle joint with associated disruption of the syndesmosis to this level . for proximal fibular tenderness in order to rule out Maisonneuve fractures .

MAISSONNEUVE FRACTURE •Spiral fracture of proximal Fibula from eversion injury •Distal syndesmosis disrupted . • Weber Type B, C • Bi or Trimalleolar Fracture A Maisonneuve fracture is a specific type of injury that involves the ankle joint and extends up the lower extremity. The fracture that occurs with this injury is higher up the leg than the ankle joint although much of the damage to the soft tissues is located around the ankle. Without a careful examination and appropriate imaging studies, this. Introduction Although Maisonneuve fracture (MF) is a well-known type of ankle fracture-dislocation, there is still a lack of information about the epidemiology and the extent of all associated injuries. The aim of study is to describe MF pathoanatomy on the basis of radiographs, CT scans and intraoperative findings. Materials and methods The study comprised 54 adult patients. MF was defined. . Ankle fractures are a common injury, more common in younger males or older females, and account for around 10% of all fractures seen in the trauma setting.. The ankle is comprised of the talus bone articulating within the mortise (Fig. 1); the mortise is comprised of the tibial plafond and medial malleolus (the distal end of the tibia) and the lateral malleolus (the distal end of.
Weber type C and P-ER type 2 and 3 fractures, because of the syndesmosis injury and associated instability. as an isolated medial malleolus may be part of a more complex Maisonneuve fracture with a proximal fibula fracture and injury to the syndesmosis . Medial malleolar fractures may be transverse, oblique, or nearly vertical in orientation classification, originally developed by Danis and later Weber. The Müller-AO Classification (Danis-Weber) is based on the fracture location of the fibula. The fractures are divided into 3 • In very unstable fractures (Maisonneuve injuries), in smokers, or in patients with diabetes, wait a least 12 weeks. • If not removed, the screw may. Weber C. Weber C fractures are also known as the Dupytren's fracture and the Maisonneuve fracture, which is a high fibular fracture. The fibula shows a spiral fracture above the syndesmosis. The medial malleolus is fractured along with the possibility of a rupture of the deltoid ligament. The posterior malleolus has an avulsion fracture with.

Joint widening with no obvious fracture on the ankle radiograph may also indicate a more proximal fracture such as a Maisonneuve fracture (this is a combination of an unstable ankle due to a ligamentous and/or bony injury together with a proximal fibular fracture). In these situations, consider asking for additional X-rays. (Weber C) with. Maisonneuve fractures are rare ankle injuries, accounting for up to 7% of all ankle fractures. They consist of a proximal third fibula fracture, syndesmotic disruption, and medial ankle injury (either a deltoid ligament disruption or a medial malleolus fracture), and are often successfully managed with nonoperative treatment of the proximal fibula fracture and open reduction and internal.
The injury may be purely ligamentous, or there may be associated fracture. Associated fractures include pronation-external rotation ankle fracture (Weber type C), supination-external rotation ankle fracture (Weber type B), and fracture of the proximal fibula (Maisonneuve). Diagnosis Physical Examinatio The typical bimalleolar fracture involves bone injury to the inner and outer side of the ankle. People who sustain a trimalleolar ankle fracture also have a bone injury at the back of the tibia ( posterior malleolus fracture) near the ankle joint. 3 Often this does not change the treatment from that of a bimalleolar ankle fracture
Inclusion criteria were all distal fibular fractures re-quiring an operative treatment (Danis-Weber type B ≙ AO type 44 B1, 2, 3 and Danis-Weber type C ≙ AO type 44 C1, 2). Exclusion criteria were complex pilon frac-tures (AO43C3), Maisonneuve fractures (AO44C3), bi-lateral leg fractures, and patients who had undergon Dr. Ebraheim's educational animated video describes the Danis Weber classification of ankle fractures.

There is also almost always an associated medial injury. This type of fracture includes Maisonneuve fracture pronation/abduction or pronation/external rotation. In relation to the Lauge-Hansen classification, type C Danis Weber fractures simulate an abduction/external rotation injury A syndesmosis injury in ankle fractures is common. Weber's own studies showed an incidence of 50% in Weber B fractures and 100% in Weber C fractures 10. Our results (55% in Weber B and 100% in Weber C) are consistent with these original findings. With syndesmotic instability as the criteria, our study also found an incidence of 45% in Weber B. Ankle fractures are accompanied by a syndesmotic injury in about 10% of operatively treated ankle fractures. Usually, the total rupture of the syndesmotic ligaments with an external rotation force is associated with a Weber type B or C fracture or a Maisonneuve fracture. The clinical assessment should consist of a comprehensiv Maisonneuve Fracture is a severe ankle injury which arises due to a spiral fracture of the proximal third of the fibula along with a tear of the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis and interosseous membrane.

Weber classification. Stable vs Unstable. Fracture 1 part = usually stable. Fracture > 1 part = unstable. Unstable fractures Maisonneuve fractures are considered.. injuries, but be careful with ORIF due to common peroneal nerve. Unstable Note - Weber C is least common (8%) out of fibular fractures, BUT most common with syndesmosis injuries; Weber B is most common otherwise (63%
The Danis-Weber classification (more commonly - the Weber classification) is a simple method of describing ankle fractures.. It has three categories (Type A, B and C.) based primarily upon the fracture of the fibula. The higher (more proximal) the fibular fracture, the greater the likelihood for ankle mortise insufficiency. first described by Robert Danis in 1949 and later modified and. The bimalleolar fracture accounts for 60% of all ankle fractures, with an incidence of 187 fractures per 100,000 people. This fracture has a bimodal distribution and most commonly affects older women, young males. Ankle fracture is the third most common fracture overall, and in the athletes, it is the most frequently encountered fracture . We excluded patients who achieved syndesmosis stability after fracture fixation
Ankle Fracture Post-op Rehabilitation Protocol This protocol provides you with general guidelines for initial stage and progression of rehabilitation according to specified time frames, related tissue tolerance and directional preference of movement. Specific changes in the program will be made by th Ankle fractures are accompanied by a syndesmotic injury in about 10% of operatively treated ankle fractures. Usually, the total rupture of the syndesmotic ligaments with an external rotation force is associated with a Weber type B or C fracture or a Maisonneuve fracture

This fracture can exist as isolated fractures of the lateral malleolus, or bimalleolar injuries in which both lateral and medial malleoli are fractured Ankle Fractures - Danis Weber Classification. The more proximal fibular fractures indicate a risk of syndesmotic disruption and ankle instability. Type A is an internal rotation and adduction injury. The fracture of the fibular is below the level of the tibial plafond. It is usually an avulsion injury from supination of the foot
Stage III: Oblique or spiral fibular fracture above the joint (Weber C / Maisonneuve Fracture) Stage IV: PITFL syndesmotic rupture or avulsion of posterior lateral malleolus (Volkmann's fracture) Using the Lauge-Hansen classification, list the stages of a Supination Adduction (SA) ankle injury ANKLE: Maisonneuve fracture High fibula fracture Ankle injury Interosseous membrane injury Fibula fracture may not be obvious Isolated posterior or medial malleolus fracture: look for fibular fracture if ankle XR shows isolated posterior or medial malleolar fracture. 3 Weber/AO - categorizes fractures on level of the fibular fracture. a. Type A - Fractures below the tibial plafond and typically transverse. b. Type B - Fractures at level of tibial plafond and typically extend proximally in a spiral or short oblique fashion. c. Type C - Fractures above the tibial plafond and associated with syndesmotic.
