Assessing Vascular Status and Risk of Latent Ischemia with Ankle Fracture: A Case Report and Algorithm for Treatment – Corrected Proof

Abstract: A paucity of published studies and clinical recommendations are available regarding ankle fracture and its association with vascular injury, likely because of the lower incidence relative to the more commonly seen popliteal artery injury after knee dislocation. In the present case report, we describe a previously healthy patient who experienced a pilon type ankle fracture (AO 43C2) with fibular and syndesmotic involvement, followed by a subacute presentation of vascular ischemia weeks after the initial injury and repair, ultimately leading to a major amputation.
