Medial subtalar dislocation associated with fracture of the posterior process of the talus

A 17-year-old male sustained a medial subtalar fracture dislocation while playing basketball. The dislocation of the subtalar joint was reduced by closed means, but a large, comminuted, displaced posterior process fracture remained. Open reduction and internal fixation through a posteromedial approach was used to restore congruity to the subtalar joint. MRI at 12 months after injury showed no signs of avascular necrosis in the talus.
