Rights and Permissions

Talus fractures are rare orthopedic injuries. Surgical fixation is challenging for treating surgeons. The clear majority of fractures require operative treatment. The indication and use of plates in fixation of talus fractures are reviewed. Specific applications including fractures of the lateral process, posterior fractures, extreme comminution, bone grafting, and spring plating to hold key segments are reviewed in this article.
