Ankle fractures. Supination-eversion fractures stage II. Primary and late results of operative and non-operative treatment.


Sixty-nine patients with stage II supination-eversion fractures of the ankle, 34 treated by operation and 35 treated conservatively, were seen at follow-up after 3-10 years. There was no statistically significant differnce between the results of the two methods. However, larger series and perhaps a longer observation time are probably needed to decide whether the displacement of the lateral malleolus as a result of non-operative treatment affords the same possibility of unhindered ankle function as union of the lateral malleolus in the anatomical position obtained by operation.
