Abstract

Pure ankle dislocation is a rare event that primarily results from high-energy trauma. Predisposing anatomical factors such as talar hypoplasia, ligament laxity, and previous sprains may play a key role. This report presents the case of a 55-year-old man with fatal anterior and posterior tibial artery tears following a pure anterolateral dislocation of the right ankle. To the best of our knowledge, no such cases have previously been reported in the English-language literature.
