Type I: Intra-articular fracture of the distal tibia without significant displacement

Type II: Intra-articular fracture of the distal tibia with significant displacement but minimal comminution

Type III: Fracture of distal tibia with severe comminution and significant intra-articular displacement.

Explanation

In 1979, Ruedi and Allgower proposed the above classification on the basis of involvement of the articular surface and comminution of the fracture.
