Abstract

Abstract Two cases of triplane fracture of the ankle in children are presented. Both patients were treated conservatively with good results. The typical age incidence and difficulties in establishing the diagnosis by X-ray examination are discussed. Closed reduction and plaster immobilization is recommended. Only if joint congruity cannot be restored is operative treatment required.
