Common Causes of Bimalleolar/Trimalleolar Fractures

1. Trip and Fall Accidents:

  • Occur on sidewalks, stairs, and uneven walking surfaces.
  • Can result from poorly maintained premises, inadequate lighting, or obstacles in the walking path.

2. Car Accidents:

  • Impact to the lower extremities during a collision can lead to severe fractures.
  • Injuries may occur due to the force of impact, especially in side-impact or T-bone collisions.

3. Slip and Fall Accidents:

  • Wet surfaces, snow, and ice can create hazardous conditions.
  • Inadequate signage or failure to address weather-related risks may contribute to slip and fall incidents.

Understanding Bimalleolar/Trimalleolar Fractures


  • Malleolar fractures involve the lower leg and ankle joint.
  • Bimalleolar: Fracture of two malleoli (medial and lateral).
  • Trimalleolar: Fracture of all three malleoli (medial, lateral, and posterior).

Medical Implications:

  • Often requires surgical intervention with the use of plates and screws.
  • Potential scarring and the presence of hardware, which may be permanent or removed based on the case.
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy may be necessary, leading to limitations on activities and a potential limp.
