ABSTRACT

Subtalar dislocations were first described by Judey and Dufaurest in 1811. These dislocations represent only 1–2% of all joint dislocations, making them a rare injury. In this rare injury, there are four variations with differing clinical presentations. The clinical picture may vary from a dramatic deformity (as in medial and lateral dislocations) to a more subtle presentation (as in anterior and posterior dislocations). This case series highlights the variations in clinical presentations and the management difficulties associated with each subtype.
