 Discussion of Ankle fracture
 Weber Classification
- Uses the position of the level of the fibular fracture in its relationship to its height at the ankle joint.
- Type A: fracture below the ankle joint
- Type B: fracture at the level of the joint, with the tibiofibular ligaments usually intact
- Type C: fracture above the joint level which tears the syndesmotic ligaments.
 Lauge-Hansen Classification
- Uses 2 words descriptors. The first word describes the position of the foot, the second word describes the motion of the foot (talus) with respect to the leg.
- Supination-Adduction (Weber A)
- Supination-External rotation (Weber B)
- Stage 1: the anteroinferior tibiofibular ligament is torn or avulsed
- Stage 2: the talus displaces and fractures the fibula in an oblique or spiral fracture, starting at the joint.
- Stage 3: tear of the posteroinferior tibiofibular ligament or fracture posterior malleolus
- Stage 4: tear of the deltoid ligament or transverse fracture medial malleolus
- Pronation-Abduction (Weber C)
- Pronation-External rotation (Weber C)
- Pronation-Dorsiflexion (Weber C)
