Ankle fracture: Ankle fractures can be classified many ways. The danes-weber classification is one, another is lauge-hansen, etc. Another way is by addressing the number of fractures (unimalleolar, no malleolar etc) or the number of fractures with apparent ligament tears due to displacement of the joint space (bi mal equivalent, trimal equivalent).

Weber Fx : Weber b fracture is usually at lvek at ankle level but can have fx at both tibia and fibula and can have deltoid ligament rupture at atfl or cfl rupture. If not displaced cast is good, if displaced surgery is needed.
