Ankle injuries are one of the most common injuries presenting to both outpatient clinics and emergency departments, with a large percentage of these being ankle sprains. These sprains can be anywhere from a mild injury (with only a small amount of pain with ambulation) to severe (with significant functional limitations). The podcast will discuss the anatomy and structures of the ankle, grading and classification of the sprain types, important history and physical exam maneuvers, the indications for radiography, and finally management.

The definition as undergone different re-iterations over the years, which has hampered some of the clinical and research utility. This podcast will discuss the current definition, the initial evaluation of a patient with a suspected TIA, the acute management, and how we as clinicians can help reduce modifiable risk factors and increase secondary prevention of future events.
