IntroductionThe objective of the study was to compare the radiologic and clinical outcome of patients with an isolated displaced talus fracture treated intra-operatively with either conventional fluoroscopy or additional cone beam computed tomography (CT).MethodsConventional intraoperative fluoroscopy was performed in group 1 and cone beam CT was added in group 2. Clinical outcome was assessed using the Foot Function Index (FFI), American Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) Ankle-Hindfoot Scale, and…

TLDR
The analysis of the trends of the development of the X-ray diagnostic in the Russian Federation allows predicting a further increase of the number of computer tomography, interventional and nuclear medicine examinations as well as an increase in the collective dose from medical exposure up to a factor of two in the next decade.

Impact of Intraoperative Cone Beam Computed Tomography on Reduction Quality and Implant Position in Treatment of Tibial Plafond Fractures
TLDR
Despite its acceptance as the standard method of imaging, intraoperative conventional fluoroscopy for the assessment of implant positioning and fracture reduction of tibial plafond fractures is limited.
Surgical management of Hawkins type III talar neck fracture through the approach of medial malleolar osteotomy and mini-plate for fixation
TLDR
This surgical treatment of Hawkins type III talarneck fracture through the approach of medial malleolar osteotomy and mini-plate for fixation resulted in decreased soft tissue trauma, adequate exposure of talar neck, satisfactory performance of daily life activities, and quality of life following surgery and restoration of anatomy of injured talus.
[Comparative study of the quality of C-arm based 3D imaging of the talus].
TLDR
The SIREMOBIL Iso-C3D is useful for the intraoperative diagnosis of small joints with few artifacts producing osteosynthesis material, i.e., for recognizing the position of screws in the region of glenoid surfaces.
Intraoperative three-dimensional imaging in the treatment of calcaneal fractures.
TLDR
In many cases, intraoperative three-dimensional imaging identifies intra-articular incongruence and implants that are not detected by fluoroscopy, which indicates that postoperative joint surface congruence had a significant influence on clinical outcome.
Long-term follow-up after surgical treatment of talar fractures
TLDR
The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term outcomes of these fractures after operative treatment in the authors' centre between 1993 and 2005 and obtained anatomical reduction in 30% of the whole series of both groups.
Intraoperative three-dimensional imaging in the treatment of acute unstable syndesmotic injuries.
TLDR
Any treatment of a syndesmotic injury should include intraoperative three-dimensional imaging or at least a postoperative computed tomography scan, according to the high proportion of positive findings in this study.
Open reduction and stable fixation of isolated, displaced talar neck and body fractures.
TLDR
Open reduction and internal fixation is recommended for the treatment of displaced talar neck and/or body fractures and a delay in surgical fixation does not appear to affect the outcome, union, or prevalence of osteonecrosis.
Clinical outcome of fractures of the talar body
TLDR
The medium-term results of displaced fractures of the talar body treated by internal fixation and early complications included two superficial wound infections, one partial wound dehiscence, one instance of skin necrosis and one deep infection.
Talar neck fractures: results and outcomes.
TLDR
Osteonecrosis was associated with talar neck comminution and open fractures, confirming that higher-energy injuries are associated with more complications and a worse prognosis.
Functional Outcomes Following Displaced Talar Neck Fractures
TLDR
The incidence of secondary reconstructive surgery following talar neck fractures increased over time and was most commonly performed to treat subtalar arthritis or misalignment.
