Talus fractures can be challenging injuries to treat because of complex talar shape, an abundance of articular cartilage, a potentially unforgiving soft-tissue envelope, and an easily injured blood supply. In addition, the spectra of energy involved, soft-tissue injury, and the fracture pattern are wide. Temporizing treatment is sometimes required, including débridement of open fractures, reduction of dislocations, and occasionally spanning external fixation. Definitive treatment first requires an understanding of the fracture pattern, including location and fracture line orientation. Multiple options for surgical exposure exist and are selected based on the fracture pattern and condition of the soft tissues. Newer fixation techniques, including the use of fixed-angle and minifragment implants, are useful in achieving stable fixation.
