Hawkins classification of talar neck fracture - illustration

Case contributed by Dr Matt Skalski



The different types of injury associated with talar neck fracture according to the Hawkins classification are illustrated. 

Case Discussion

Talar neck fractures extend through the thinnest cross-sectional portion of the talus, just proximal to the talar head. They represent one of the most common types of talus fracture (~30-50%). These fractures are commonly associated with subtalar dislocation and/or posterior body fractures.
