Jeffrey D. Seybold, MD. A 69-year-old female who sustained an ankle dislocation with associated distal fibula, posterior pilon, and deltoid avulsion fractures was treated successfully with the Acumed Ankle Plating System 3. Patient History: The patient is a 69-year-old female with an unremarkable medical history who sustained a mechanical fall at home, slipping and falling down the last few steps of a staircase. The patient was brought to the emergency department where an ankle fracture-dislocation was noted. The patient underwent a successful closed reduction of the ankle in the emergency department and was placed into a short-leg splint. The patient was initially admitted to the hospital for pain control and discharged the following day after formal orthopaedics consultation. Eight days later, after adequate improvement in soft tissue swelling, the patient was brought to the operating room for definitive fracture fixation.
