    ABSTRACT: The prevalence, characterization, and classification of acute, post-traumatic, occult subcortical fractures of the knee, identified at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, were evaluated prospectively in 120 consecutive patients first seen with acute posttraumatic hemarthrosis of the knee. Occult subcortical femoral and tibial fractures were identified in 72% of patients. A modified MR imaging classification is suggested based on a combination of the appearances of such lesions at MR imaging and their short-term osteochondral sequelae. Among 67% of a cohort of 21 patients first seen with what have been described as occult geographic subcortical fractures, osteochondral sequelae were seen at follow-up MR imaging 6-12 months later. The evidence from this study indicates that specific subcategories of occult subcortical knee fractures are associated with an inordinately high prevalence of osteochondral sequelae, especially significant cartilage damage.

    ABSTRACT: Fractures of the entire posterior process of the talus are rare and may be easily missed. Both the ankle joint and the subtalar joint are involved. This leads to malunion and early degenerative changes. We describe four patients with fractures of the posterior process of the talus which were initially missed. The patients were treated conservatively, and early mobilization or cast immobilization did not change the poor late results. The pitfalls in the diagnosis and imaging evaluation of such fractures are discussed.

    ABSTRACT: This paper brings to the reader's attention an injury and symptom complex resulting from an ankle sprain during athletic competition. Twenty patients were reviewed and followed over a 3 1/2 year period of time. Three patients presented acutely and 17 patients presented after an extended period of time with residual ankle morbidity. Common to this group of patients was a history of having sustained an ankle sprain, most commonly secondary to a forced plantar flexion type injury. Subsequent disability was generally posterior and postero-lateral ankle pain associated with running and/or jumping. Clinical examination invariably demonstrated posterior ankle pain, particularly with forced plantar flexion of the foot. All patients demonstrated bony changes in the area of the posterior talus and/or tibia by x-ray, and all patients had a positive technetium bone scan of the posterior ankle area. If the injury is diagnosed acutely, cast immobilization is the treatment of choice. If diagnosed late, it is suggested that for those patients who fail conservative treatment, surgical removal of the fragment is best. The majority of patients in this study required surgical extirpation of the posterior talus bony fragment in order to relieve symptoms and return to full sports competition.
