Bimalleolar Fracture

A bimalleolar fracture is the result of a fracture to the two lower bones that make up the ankle: one on the outside of the ankle and one on the inside. Bimalleolar fractures are often caused by motor vehicle accidents, falls, and twisting the ankle. Common symptoms include: swelling, tenderness, bruising, and inability to bear weight.
