Type B fibula fractures are the most common type of ankle fractures. Generally, surgical repair is advised for unstable fractures and non-operative treatment for stable fractures. However, evidence on long-term functional outcome of both treatment regimens is lacking. Aim of this study is to compare the long-term outcome in function and pain between patients with an isolated type B fibula fracture treated non-operatively and surgically.
