Use of a Locked Fibular Plate for Fixation of a Vertical Shear Medial Malleolus Fracture: A Case Report

Vertical shear fractures of the medial malleolus are less common than transverse fractures. These fractures are often treated with lag screws, posteromedial buttress plating, antiglide plates, and neutralization plates with screws. We report on a 37-year-old male who had fractured his ankle after tripping and falling into a ditch.
