Posteromedial Approach for Talar Body Fractures: Avoiding the Medial Malleolar OsteotomyKubiak, Erik N. MD; Nickisch, Florian MDTechniques in Foot & Ankle Surgery: June 2009 - Volume 8 - Issue 2 - p 65-69 doi: 10.1097/BTF.0b013e3181a770e1 Special Focus: Ankle and Hinfoot Trauma Buy Abstract Author InformationAuthors Article MetricsMetrics Talar body fractures are severe injuries with a historically poor prognosis. Outcomes of the injuries are optimized by stable accurate internal fixation. We describe a posteromedial approach for the treatment of posterior talar body fractures, which forgoes the need for a periarticular osteotomy of the fibula or the medial malleolus.
