Compared with rotational ankle fractures, patients with tibial plafond fractures showed significant elevation of several cytokines, according to results presented at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Annual Meeting Lucas S. Marchand, M.D., and colleagues performed synovial fluid aspiration at the time of presentation or at index surgery for 26 patients with rotational ankle fractures and 23 patients with tibial plafond fractures to measure the inflammatory response.
