Adolescent Fracture of the Talus Associated With Talus Partitus


A case report of an adolescent with a fracture of the talus with an associated talus partitus is presented. Unlike the more common os trigonum, which arises from a secondary ossification center, the talus partitus is substantially larger and may include articulation with the ankle and subtalar joint, making its preservation via osteosynthesis with the talus desirable.
