Although an isolated lateral malleolus ankle fracture is fairly common, management of the condition remains challenging for orthopaedic surgeons. A central question remains: Is surgery or a nonsurgical approach best for a particular patient?

“A lot rides on whether the ankle is stable or not,” said Amiethab A. Aiyer, M.D., an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in foot and ankle care at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. “However, no clinical examination or imaging strategy stands out as clearly superior for determining ankle stability after such an injury. We want to be able to provide clinicians and residents with a much more up-to-date overview on what management options are available.”
