I have heard of it. It usually means (at least in my case) that there was a fracture and a sprain/strain opposite of the fx site. example medial malleolar fx and lateral ligament tear.
I have asked my docs to stop saying this, as it is confusing.
I always go by the dictation, what was actually fx and what was sprain/strain, it should be detailed in the op report.
