Abstract

Talus fractures are rare injuries that account for approximately 3% of all foot fractures; talar neck fractures account for almost 50% of all talus fractures. The appropriate diagnosis and treatment of these fractures play an important role in the patient's outcome. Treatment has evolved slowly throughout the years, from closed treatment to open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF). The treatment of type I and type II talar neck fractures is not uniform in the orthopedic community. The option of closed reduction versus ORIF is dependent upon the degree of injury, surgeon experience, and preference.
