Fracture-Dislocation of the Midtarsal (chopart) Joint with Tibio-Talar Subluxation. A Case Report and Literature Review

Amadou Ndiasse Kasse*, Lo Faty Balla, Diouf Joseph Davy, Diao Souleymane and Sané Jean Claude


Midtarsal dislocations, compared to the Lisfranc joint injuries, are considered rare in the literature with usually clinical reports. We report the case of a 16-year-old girl who suffered a closed ankle trauma following a fall from the 3rd floor with a talo-navicular fracture-dislocation associated with tibiotalar subluxation. The authors insist on the singularity of this observation due to the exceptional association of injuries as well as the inveterate character. 

These dislocations still go underestimated, hence the need for a good radiological analysis of the lesions in the context of the emergency and adequate early management.
