Tibia fractures

A distal tibia fracture

Tibia fracture is common in up to 4 percent of seniors, and is a common long bone fracture[1]

Fibular fracture

Ankle fractures are mainly represented by distal fibula fractures [4]

Combined tibia and fibula fracture

X-ray film of typical cases with open tibia and fibula fracture.

A tib-fib fracture is a fracture of both the tibia and fibula of the same leg in the same incident. Since the fibula is smaller and weaker than the tibia, a force strong enough to fracture the tibia often fractures the fibula as well. Types include:
