The diagnosis of clinically important instability following isolated supination-external rotation (SER) distal fibular fractures is a challenge. The purpose of this study was to investigate the accuracy of clinical findings including medial tenderness, swelling, and ecchymosis, combined with the gravity stress test and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), in the assessment of ankle mortise stability in association with isolated SER-type lateral malleolar fractures.
