Transarticular external fixation versus deltoid ligament repair in treating SER IV ankle fractures: A comparative study
from BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders
The topic that whether the injured deltoid ligament should be repaired when associated with ankle joint fractures is still discussed. The objective of this study was to compare the clinical effect of open reduction and internal fixation with deltoid ligament repair or transarticular external fixation in treating supination-external rotation type IV ankle fractures.
