F, fibula; LM, lateral malleolus; MM, medial malleolus
; T, talus.
Interestingly, these studies provided descriptions of high-energy transsyndesmotic ankle translocation fractures in the majority of patients (extrusion of the distal tibia, medial malleolus
fracture, Volkmann's fracture, etc.; Table 1 and [1,2]) very similar to the injury sustained by our patient.
Topographic anatomy of the tibial nerve in the medial malleolus
: application to the effect of nerve block anesthesia.
With the patellae straight the lateral malleolus was seen to precede the medial malleolus
. Since feet and hips are normal, this indicates internal tibial torsion.
The GSV began as the medial end of dorsal venous arch, is joined by medial marginal vein in front of the medial malleolus
of the ankle.
Chiropractors routinely assess LLD using visual analysis with the patient prone or supine and compare medial malleolus
, sole-heel interface or bottom of the shoes for relative position.
Results: The average angle between tibia plafond and the articular facet of the medial malleolus
It centralises the mechanical axis of the tibia over the talus and there is no prominent medial malleolus
found after medial wedge removal.
 With the subject standing, the angle between the first metatarsal, medial malleolus
and the navicular bone was measured.
The two static anatomic landmarks used in measuring leg-length discrepancy are the anterior superior iliac spine located right under the belt line and the medial malleolus
The fractured medial malleolus
was everted, the deltoid ligament was protected, and the fracture was reduced and fixed with two AO cancellous screws.
