Fractures of the talus: long term complications and their treatment

Milano L., D’Aleo P., Visca G., Dettoni F.


PDF


The paper discusses talus fractures with particular emphasis on complications and their treatment and reaches the following conclusions: 1) Talus fractures are serious injuries and burdened with a high incidence of complications. 2) The most frequent complications are degenerative post-traumatic arthropathies, non-vascular necrosis, badly knit bones, pseudoarthroses and infections. 3) The frequency of these complications is probably related to the anatomopathological character of the fracture, the accuracy of the initial reduction and the healing process. 4) All these events require a careful treatment targeted at the three-dimensional reconstruction of the tarsus, making sure that only compromised joints are sacrified.
