Lateral ankle injuries without radiographic evidence of a fracture are common injuries for children and rarely result in Salter-Harris I fractures of the distal fibula (SH1DF), according to a prospective cohort study published online Jan. 4 in JAMA Pediatrics. Such injuries are more likely to be sprains that can be managed simply and cheaply with removable ankle braces.
