Zusammenfassung

Hintergrund

Die Versorgung oberer Sprunggelenkfrakturen gehört zu den Standardverfahren einer jeden unfallchirurgischen Klinik.

Therapie

Voraussetzung einer erfolgreichen Therapie sind ein profundes Frakturverständnis und die kompromisslose anatomische Rekonstruktion der Sprunggelenkgabel zur Vermeidung einer posttraumatischen Arthrose. Operative Strategien und Erfordernisse werden anhand der Frakturpathomechanik erläutert und implantatbedingte Besonderheiten erklärt.

Abstract

Background

Ankle fracture surgery is a common task in trauma centers.

Therapy

The key of successful treatment is a thorough understanding of fracture pathomechanics and a meticulous anatomical reduction of the upper ankle joint to prevent secondary arthritis. Surgical strategies and requisites are explained according to the fracture’s pathomechanics. Implant-related properties are highlighted.
