Abstract
At times the deltoid ligament pulls the medial malleolus thereby causing avulsion fracture of the malleolus. Potts fracture occurs when the foot is caught in the rabbit hole in the ground and the foot is forcibly everted. In this condition at first there is an oblique fracture of shaft and lateral malleolus of fibula. The strong eversion pull on the deltoid ligament causes transverse fracture of medial malleolus. If the tibia is carried anteriorly, the posterior margin of the distal end of the tibia is also broken by the talus producing a trimalleolar fracture. So in order to understand the usefulness of X-Ray in diagnosis of ligamental tear in talocrural joint this study has been conducted.
