Subtalar dislocation

R Gérard, N Kerfant, G Dubois de Mont Marin, R Stern, M Assal
We report the unusual case of a 16-year-old young man who sustained a rare association of a Hawkins' type-II talar neck fracture with a complete medial subtalar dislocation (Hawkins type-IIB) that occurred as an isolated injury after indirect trauma during a soccer game. Following closed reduction of the subtalar dislocation, standard radiographs and computed tomography (CT) demonstrated a comminuted fracture of the talus involving the base of the talar neck. Open reduction was performed and the fracture was stabilized by ORIF...

Charcot's neuroarthropathy can have devastating consequences if left untreated or misdiagnosed. With progression of the disease from the acute to the chronic phase, substantial deformity and instability may result, leading to ulceration and a nonfunctional limb. The purpose of this case report is to present a staged reconstruction for active Charcot's neuroarthropathy involving the subtalar joint with complete dislocation that resulted in limb salvage and maintenance of limb function at 1-year follow-up. Although for many patients the mainstay of treatment for early Charcot's neuroarthropathy is conservative care with off-loading, early surgical correction that includes external fixation followed by definitive arthrodesis for select patients may be warranted...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Peripheral fractures of the talus (lateral talar process and posterior talar process) are rare injuries, easy to miss on examination due to their location and clinical manifestation. They account for 0.3% to 1.0% of all fractures of the talus. An incorrect or late treatment of talar process fractures can result in permanent pain, impingement syndrome, healing in malposition, pseudoarthrosis development and also, due to joint instability, in a potential development of severe subtalar arthritis...

A case of complicated lateral subtalar dislocation is presented and the literature concerning this injury is reviewed. Subtalar joint dislocations are rare and often the result of a high-energy trauma. Complications include avascular necrosis of the talus, infection, posttraumatic osteoarthritis requiring arthrodesis and chronic subtalar instability. Negative prognostic factors include lateral and complicated dislocations, total talar extrusions, and associated fractures. A literature search was performed to identify studies describing outcome after lateral subtalar joint dislocation...

Isolated acute traumatic subtalar dislocations are quite rare. They correspond to talotarsal dislocation, including the talonavicular and talocalcaneal joints. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the functional and radiologic outcomes of the treatment of acute traumatic isolated subtalar dislocations. The present retrospective study included 13 patients who had sustained isolated subtalar dislocations during a 10-year period. Of the 13 cases, 10 (76.9%) were medial dislocations and 3 (23.1%) were lateral dislocations...

The ideal treatment of displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures is still controversially discussed. Because of the variable fracture patterns and the vulnerable soft tissue coverage an individual treatment concept is advisable. In order to minimize wound edge necrosis associated with extended lateral approaches, selected fractures may be treated percutaneously or in a less invasive manner while controlling joint reduction via a sinus tarsi approach. Fixation in these cases is achieved with screws, intramedullary locking nails or modified plates that are slid in subcutaneously...

Anterior subtalar dislocation is a very rare injury. We report a case of an 81-year-old woman who had her right foot injured during a motor vehicle accident. Radiographs showed anterior subtalar dislocation with comminuted fracture of the anterior calcaneal process. The dislocation was closely reduced and protected by a short leg cast. One year postinjury, the patient had only mild pain when walking on uneven ground. There was mild tenderness over the lateral heel. Subtalar motion was mildly painful. There was no pain with ankle motion...

UNLABELLED: Closed lateral subtalar dislocation is a very rare injury. We report a case of closed lateral subtalar dislocation with entrapment of flexor hallucis longus tendon producing a checkrein deformity. The patient was managed immediately with closed reduction under regional anesthesia and fixated with percutaneous Kirschner wires. Early mobilization and weightbearing was started and there were no complications till the last follow-up visit. LEVELS OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic, Level IV: Case study...

Fractures of the talar neck with subtalar and tibiotalar joint dislocation (AO/OTA 81-B3) represent a treatment challenge for the orthopedic surgeon. The magnitude of deformity and complexity of the pathoanatomy adds to concerns for soft tissue embarrassment to convey an urgency of surgical intervention. Previous studies have described the several techniques for talar reduction, including medial malleolar osteotomy, posterior Schanz pin manipulation, or posteromedial incision to facilitate relocation at the time of definitive open treatment...

INTRODUCTION: Ankle fractures are one of the most common fractures requiring surgical treatment. Ankle fracture-dislocations are significant injuries to the osseous and soft tissue envelope, but studies focused on the effect of dislocation on radiographic and functional outcomes are lacking. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of dislocations on postoperative outcomes in SER IV ankle fracture patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From 2004 through 2010, all operative SER IV ankle fractures treated by a single surgeon were enrolled in a prospective database...

PURPOSE: Research on venous thromboembolism events (VTE), such as deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), in pediatric orthopaedic trauma patients is sparse. We describe the incidence in the USA of VTE associated with pediatric lower extremity orthopaedic trauma, and characterize injury patterns and VTE treatment methods. METHODS: The Pediatric Health Information System (PHIS) was queried from 2004 to 2013 using ICD-9 codes for lower extremity fractures (pelvis, femur, tibia, ankle, foot) and dislocations (hip, knee, ankle, subtalar) and VTE...

A 27-year old woman was admitted to the emergency room after her left ankle rolled inward during a volleyball game. On physical examination a bony prominence on the lateral side of the left foot was noticeable, without neurovascular injury. An X-ray (anterior-posterior view) showed a subtalar dislocation without associated fractures.

Subtalar dislocations are uncommon injuries, and anterior subtalar dislocations are extremely rare. Only 7 cases have been reported in detail in the literature, but all were associated with substantial displacement immediately apparent on radiographs. We report a case of a subtle anterior subtalar dislocation that was missed on initial plain films but was subsequently treated successfully with closed reduction.

BACKGROUND: The subtalar dislocation (SD) of the foot is an uncommon injury characterized by a simultaneous dislocation of talocalcaneal and talonavicular joints without involvement of the tibiotalar and calcaneocuboid joints. PURPOSES: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical and radiological outcome in a consecutive series of close SD. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated a case series of patients who presented a close SD...

Fracture of the posterior process of the talus with concomitant subtalar dislocation is rare; thus, the mechanism of injury, appropriate treatment, and prognosis are unclear. We report the case of a 50-year-old male with a fracture of the posterior process of the talus with concomitant subtalar dislocation that was recognized early and successfully treated operatively.
