 sickle cell anemia and ankle fracture

I have been unable to find any literature regarding common fractures in
patients with sickle cell anemia.  Specifically I have a 42 male with
displaced lateral malleolar fracture with deltoid tear.  What are
increased risks of ORIF?  Can a tourniquet be used? Increased wound
problems? Is sickle cell a contraindication to ORIF if closed reduction
not acceptable?
