The article discusses a study on the treatment of patients who had open injuries of the talus. Among orthopedic surgeons there is a general lack of consensus on how to handle an extruded talus. By studying the results of numerous operations that were done on patients, it was found that it is safe to attempt to salvage an extruded talus without great likelihood of infection.
