Abstract

The juvenile Tillaux fracture is an injury involving the articular surface of the ankle joint. The fracture sometimes requires open reduction and internal fixation. The decision to adopt an operative or nonoperative policy in each case can only be made with precise imaging of the anatomy which can be provided by three-dimensional reformation of computed tomography (CT) scanning.
