What is a Posterior Talar Process Fracture?

A posterior talar process fracture is a severe injury that involves the lower leg, ankle, and foot. The talus is one of the largest bones in the foot. It forms the lower part of the ankle joint. This bone joins together with the tibia and fibula at the top as well as the calcaneus and navicular bones at the bottom. Therefore, the talus plays an important role in stabilizing the other bones of the ankle, providing flexibility to the foot and lower leg. An injury to the talus can severely compromise someone’s ankle flexibility.
