There is a complete nondisplaced vertical oblique fracture of the talus involving the body, extending from the dorsal articular surface to the subtalar surface. No subtalar dislocation or other associated fracture is seen. Moderate ankle joint effusion is noted.
Talar body fractures are less frequent than those of the talar neck (see talar neck fracture).
CT is very helpful to detect bony injury. MRI is superior to CT in the assessment of the associated soft tissue injuries around the ankle.
