Talus fracture is less common than most fractures, and bilateral talar neck fracture is extremely rare. Complications associated with talus fractures are generally deemed common because of the anatomical characteristics of the talus, but few reports have described the methods of treating such complications and the results of bilateral talar neck fracture. We report here a case of bilateral Hawkins type II talar neck fracture that had good clinical results without complications after early surgical treatment.
Key Words: Talus, Talar neck fracture, Hawkins type II
