Closed Posteromedial Dislocation of the Ankle without Fracture: A Case Report
Lertwanich P Mail, Santanapipatkul P , Harnroonroj T

Ankle dislocation without fracture is an extremely rare injury. Open dislocations were more common
in the previous reports. The authors report a case of closed posteromedial dislocation of the ankle in a 24-
year-old basketball player. Closed reduction was performed. The ankle was initially immobilized with the
short leg cast before using the functional brace. Details of the rehabilitation program were described. Follow
up examination at one-year demonstrated good clinical and functional results confirmed with the inversion
stress radiographs. The patient can participate in sports activities at the same level as pre-injury.
