The malleolar fractures primarily involve lateral or medial malleolus and often other parts of the ankle as well. Sharing and tensile forces apposed through the talus produce them indirectly. Most malleolar fractures occur when the part, including the talus, is fixed on the ground by the body’s weight. 35 patients with bimalleolar fractures of ankle who were admitted and operated were included in the present study. All the patients were explained about the aims of the study, the methods involved and an informed written consent was obtained before being included in study. In the present study, majority of the cases i.e. 15 (42.9%) had Supination-external rotation injury, followed by 8 (22.9%) cases had Pronation-abduction injury. The AO type B and C were the most common, involving 15 (42.3%) patients each, followed by type A in 5% (14.4%).
