abstract

  • Concomitant ipsilateral ankle and distal one-third spiral tibial shaft fractures are more common than previously reported. Utilizing a new imaging protocol, we found that the incidence of this combined injury was 84 %. Recognition of the ankle fracture component in this tibial shaft cohort can be important as it may alter the surgical plan and postoperative management.
