Do All Joints Have A Joint Capsule
No: A synovial joint has a capsule surrounding it. These are joints like the shoulder, knee, hip and many many others. There are also fibrous joints (like the sutures in the skull) and cartilaginous joints (like where the ribs meet the sternum). Each of these kinds of joints have numerous subtypes as well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
To Stabilize Joints: The joint capsule provides joint stability. If injured it can lead to stiffness and may then be surgically removed, without compromising stability as long as the joint's ligaments are kept intact. While this seems counterintuitive, it's because joints can undergo changes that turn the capsule from a necessary structure to a problem that is best removed (it regrows back more normal). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Would a fx of the lateral malleolus with partially torn aftl and deltoid ligs and soft tissue injury in joint capsule be described as bimalleor ?

Could i've lasting probs after nondisplaced weber b fx+partially torn aftl+deltoid soft tiss joint capsule 15wks no union symptoms now offered plate+b graft?
Possibly: Your fracture pattern is pretty common for ankle fracture variants. I would not make much of the deltoid and atfl tears as these occur with bad "sprains". The fact that your fracture was nondisplaced made it a stable injury. You are borderline definition of nonunion. May try bone stimulator. Probably just need plate and stable fixation. Doubt you need bone graft. Once fixed should do fine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
