Abstract :

BACKGROUND: Ankle joint is one of the unstable joints in the body due to its anatomic position and is more prone to injury during daily activities. Malleolar fractures are one of the most common fractures in orthopedic traumatology.

OBJECTIVES  :The aim of this  study  was to evaluate the clinical and functional results of patients with ankle fractures treated with Open reduction and internal fixation with different modalities.

Method and Materials:

A prospective study was conducted from April  2016 to April 2018 over a period of 2 years . Total 50  patients were  treated by various techniques of open reduction and internal fixation.

Result :According to Baird and Jackson scoring system, 23 (51 %) patients had excellent outcome, 14 (31%) had good outcome,6 (13 %) had fair outcome and 2 ( 4 %) had poor outcome. Supination External Rotation injury is the commonest mechanism of injury.

CONCLUSION :We concluded that early treatment , anatomical reduction and fracture fixation, stringent postoperative mobilization and rehabilitation should help improve Functional outcome in ankle fractures.
