    fibular fracture-->conservative treatment or, better, osteosynthesis with titanium plaque ( with screws). The x-ray doesn't show well the tibia, but there's another medial fracture line on it in my opinion. However, we need the latero-lateral projection of the x-ray before deciding any conservative or surgical treatment!
