Background: Talus has unique anatomical, biomechanical and vascular-supply features. Talar neck fracture is not common, but when it happens, would be associated with high complication rate, resulting in significant disability. We would like report our experience with a small group of such fractures.Methods: 11 cases of talar neck fractures who had referred to our center in 3 years period (2002-4) were retrospectively studied. The mean age was 23 years old. There were 9 types II and 2 types III (Hawkins classification). All the cases had undergone open reduction and inertial fixation. The result of treatment was evaluated with a mean follow-up of 17 months.Results: All fractures healed. Varus malunion was observed in two cases, one of whom required repeat surgery, and one with superficial infection. Avascular necrosis of the talar body was seen after the 2 type III and 3 of type II cases. Degenerative arthritis of Subtalar joint was evident in 8, and ankle arthritis in 5 patients. Conclusions: Talar neck fractures are associated with high complication rates. Post traumatic arthritis and stiffness are more common, especially in those who develop avascular necrosis. Prompt accurate reduction, rigid fixation and early motion can reduce the complications to some extent.
