Treatment of Acute Jones Fracture with Ilizarov External Minifixator: Case Series of Six Elite Athletes – Corrected Proof

Abstract: No consensus has been reached about the optimal treatment of Jones fractures, especially in elite athletes. Furthermore, only limited experience with external fixation of acute Jones fractures in these patients is available. The aim of the present retrospective study was to report the clinical evaluation of a series of 6 patients—elite athletes—with unilateral acute Jones fracture, who underwent external fixation of the fracture with an Ilizarov minifixator.
