A bipartite patella is not to be mistaken for a fracture; it is a normal variant, representing a nonfused ossiﬁcation center and always occurs at the superior lateral pole of the patella. ANKLE The Maisonneuve (Figures 3-15 and 3-16) fracture12 is easily overlooked on standard ankle radiographs, as it is distant from the area routinely covered. It is a subtype of the Weber type C fracture, where there is a high fracture of the ﬁbula resulting from external rotation and pronation (Weber type A: lateral malleolus fracture is below the level of ankle joint, type B: at the level of ankle joint, type C: above the level of ankle joint).
Scaphoid fracture. There is a nondisplaced fracture through the waist of the scaphoid bone (arrow). ᮡ Figure 2-13. Colles fracture. There is an impacted fracture through the distal radial metaphysis (arrows). There is a neutral ulnar variance; the radial and ulnar articular surface are at the same level. A scaphoid fracture (Figure 2-14) is the most common type of carpal bone fracture. Scaphoid fractures usually cause pain at the base of the thumb and sensitivity to palpation in the anatomic snuffbox.
The second injury does not need to be a fracture; it can be disruption of the SI joints or pubic symphysis (Figure 3-1). For diagnosing acetabular fractures (Figure 3-2), it is important to differentiate between the acetabular wall, column, or a combination of wall and column fractures. In short, the anterior column extends from the iliac crest to the symphysis pubis and includes the anterior wall. The posterior column extends from the superior gluteal notch to the ischial tuberosity and includes the posterior wall.
