Regarding ankle fracture, where on the ankle is the "posteromedial fracture fragment" (1 screw) and "posterolateral fracture fragment" (2 screws)?
Medial/ lateral. Medial is the inner side of the ankle, lateral the outer side. Posterior is towards the back. Hope it helps .
Where exactly on ankle is a "posteromedial fracture fragment" and a "posterolateral fracture fragment" requiring screws? (Trimalleolar fx).
Trimalleolar fractur. A trimalleolar ankle fracture by definition is an unstable ankle fracture that requires operative fixation. It includes the the distal fibula( lateral maleolous ), the medial distal end of the tibia( medial maleolous ), and the lower end of the tibia in the back of the ankle ( posterior maleolous ). The medial and lateral maleolous typically need fixation. Posterior maleolous only if >25% of joint. Read more...
