This elderly patient stepped awkwardly off of a 2 foot rock wall resulting in this compound dislocation. When she arrived at the Emergency Department she was fully awake and friendly and talkative. She was unable to move her toes at the time and pulses were faint in the foot. After X-rays were done the ER physician was able to manipulate the foot back into place. Surprisingly, aside from the graphic skin tear and bone protrusion, there were no other breaks and all major tendons, ligaments, veins/arteries were not compromised. Due to the bone being exposed to dirt and debris she was started on antibiotics and still visited the operating room for a washout, further inspection of injury and stabilization.
The treatment consisted of wound irrigation, debridement, reduction, and suture of the skin, followed by immobilization with a short leg cast. The ankle was immobilized in a neutral position for 8 weeks, and weight bearing was restricted for the first 6 weeks.
Open ankle dislocation without an associated fracture is an extremely rare injury due to the strength of the collateral ligaments and the capsular reinforcements of the mortise capsule.
They are often open because of the thin layer of tissue that lies over the malleoli.
During a traumatic event, forces are placed on the ankle that cause the bones to fracture or the ligaments to tear, resulting in the dislocation injury. The ankle is an inherently stable joint and the direction of the dislocation depends upon the position of the foot and where the force arises.
Most commonly, a dislocated ankle is associated with fractures of the distal ends of the tibia and fibula (called the malleolus) in association with damage to the ligaments that help support the ankle joint.

Progress of ankle fracture - pinned and plated in surgery 18-Nov - photo 1 ; backslab plaster secured by bandage during surgery - photo 2 (required bed rest); fibre glass cast replaced plaster on 30-Nov - now allowed up and about more but still non-weight bearing. Sadly no driving! I appreciate ...

Let chat about my foot. 📍HOW did it happen? -I stepped on a mat that usually has another mat underneath it, but for some reason the top mat was pulled over further than normal and was overhanging the mat underneath it. So when I put my foot down there was nothing underneath to take my weight, so my ankle rolled, I heard a snap and fell. 📍WHAT is the injury? -I broke my heel bone in two places (see photo 2) it’s chipped up the top of the bone and fracture down the side, which is hard to see, sorry. And sprained the outside of my ankle.
The first week I was in a moon boot as they only saw the splinter in the top of my heel bone and made an appointment for me to see the specialist. When he had a look at the scans and felt around my ankle he said there were two breaks and that the second one was more severe and that I would need a cast for 5 weeks.
The Thursday just gone we took the cast off and got new x-rays and both of the breaks are almost completely healed and so now I’m in the moonboot during the day and a brace at night.
The third photo is my point and inward rotation compared to the left foot. (although I accidentally flipped the photo so looks like my left foot). And the fourth photo is my point from this afternoon which is already a lot better.
I’m doing my own rehab until I can get an appointment with a physio I trust to get a rehab plan.
If you made it this far, thank you for caring. Also, how beautiful are autumn leaves. -

after a week of complaining about his swollen ankle ( #zaes had his football training at that time), we finally know why it didn’t heal after a visit to the GP and a bandage later. he’s got a minor fracture at his ankle bone and it is called ATFL injury. and so, cast it is! boys will be boys 🤦🏽‍♀️ #meormirzaeskandar ... after a week of complaining about his swollen ankle ( #zaes had his football training at that time), we finally know why it didn’t heal after a visit to the GP and a bandage later. he’s got a minor fracture at his ankle bone and it is called ATFL injury. and so, cast it is! boys will be boys 🤦🏽‍♀️ #meormirzaeskandar #ATFLinjury #oneweekmc
