Introduction: Break ankle today is becoming more frequent. There is a dilemma to operate immediately upon receipt or delayed surgical treatment for a day or two. The aim of the work: This work aims at showing the importance of the anatomy, mechanism of injury, injury classification, diagnostic and therapeutic methods in treatment of brake ankle from our experience. Material and methods: In the past year in our clinic there were 30 patients treated for all types of ankle fractures, and these patients were divided in two groups. Patients of the first group are those immediately operated, and the second group were with delayed surgery. The results showed that the patients of the first group had better healing, fewer complications, better and faster rehabilitation. Second groups of patients were with complications in terms dehiscence of wounds, bad healing fracture and DVT. Conclusion: Our results showed that better result in the treatment of ankle fractures is achieved by aggressive treatment immediately after trauma, with reconstruction of articular surface and tibiofibular syndesmosis with early rehabilitation.
