Simultaneous dislocation of the talus from the tibiotalar, talocalcaneal, and talonavicular joints is uncommon and usually occurs from considerable violence. Total dislocation of the talus is frequently an open injury, or the skin may be tented over the dislocated talus leading to skin slough. Infection and avascular necrosis may follow. Treatment options include closed or open reduction, talectomy, and arthrodesis. The following case and literature review illustrate some of the problems encountered and factors that influence the outcome of this injury.
