Fractures of the Talus.
The talus is the most proximal bone of the hindfoot that couples the foot to the leg. It is the second most common fracture of the tarsal bones, second in frequency to the calcaneous. However, overall injuries to the talus are relatively rare, and most surgeons have little experience in managing them. This article discusses fractures of the talus, including injuries to the talar neck, body, head, and processes. Although subtalar dislocations and osteochondral injuries are important topics, they are not addressed in this article.
