Look like an external rotation injury There could be ankle injury like fracture or ligament disruption Clinical evaluation Xray ankle Isolated fibula fracture can be treated conservatively Internal rotation of ankle will close the gap Above knee cast may be needed to maintain position

So for Maisonneuve fracture : * ORIF for unstable distal tibiofibular syndesmosis. * for medial malleolus fracture reduction and stabilization * for proximal 1/3rd fibula, reduction and stabilization without surgical intervention. EXPERTS opinion please

Thank you sir @Dr. Shivraj Agarwal

How old the injury is I#fibula as in general heals in normal course with immobilization in pop cast and does not require surgical intervention unless unstable Platting or or screw fixation may be sufficient rest you are expert on subject
