Evaluation of Lauge-Hansen Designation of Weber C Fractures – Corrected Proof

Abstract: Associations between Weber C ankle fractures and pronation external rotation (PER) injuries of the Lauge-Hansen classification have often been incorrectly correlated. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the Lauge-Hansen designation of Weber C fractures by establishing the proportion of Weber C fractures that are supination external rotation (SER), supination adduction (SA), pronation abduction (PA), PER, and hyperplantarflexion variant fractures. A clinical database of operative ankle fractures treated by the senior author (D.G.L.) was reviewed
