Figure 1 Correction of varus malalignment of the ankle through supramalleolar opening-wedge osteotomy after partial fibulectomy: (a) varus malalignment of the ankle following pilon fracture; (b) after proximal partial fibulectomy and anterior ankle decompression, the osteotomy was done using a power saw; (c) after cutting the bone, the osteotomy was opened until correction was achieved using a broad chisel. (d) Fixation of the proximal and distal fragments after opening the wedge and achieving the desired correction. (e) The osteotomy gap was filled and impacted with bone grafting.
