Abstract

Talar fracture management is one of the most challenging tasks for orthopedic surgeons. High complication rates and functional impairments after talar fractures have been well documented, and thus, surgical strategies capable of perfect anatomic reduction and stable fixation are important. The current review was undertaken to provide recommendations regarding updated surgical strategies that include surgical timing, approach, fixation methods, and the prevention and treatment of possible complications.
