Techniques in Foot & Ankle Surgery: March 2004 - Volume 3 - Issue 1 - p 40-44 Buy Abstract Osteochondral injuries of the talus are not very common accounting for only 1% of all talus fractures. The classification scheme developed by Berndt and Harty and then modified by Canale is the simplest and most common system used. The surgical management of these lesions includes debridement and drilling of the OCD. The surgical technique, preoperative planning, postoperative care, and results of such treatment are discussed. © 2004 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
