Abstract

Open total extrusion of the talus without concomitant fracture is an extremely rare injury. We present 6-year follow-up data of a patient treated using a temporary spanning external fixator and less invasive single K-wire fixation. A 55-year-old Asian man who had a totally extruded talus without fracture underwent immediate reimplantation surgery. A spanning external fixator with single antegrade K-wire fixation was applied to maintain the reimplanted talus. During 6 years of follow-up, he could walk without aids and could squat, corresponding to an American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society score of 85. We found that the suspect lesion that was evident at 6 months after surgery had disappeared at 12 months postoperatively on the basis of sequential follow-up magnetic resonance imaging. There was no evidence of osteonecrosis of the dislocated talus at the final follow-up. In patients with a totally extruded talus, a surgical strategy including immediate reimplantation of the talus and a temporary spanning fixator with single K-wire fixation might be useful to allow early mobilization around the ankle joint and to prevent additional damage of the foot without significant complications.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 07 March 2018.
All research outputs
#7,914,295
of 12,612,351 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Medical Case Reports
#734
of 2,079 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#214,784
of 383,771 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Medical Case Reports
#84
of 301 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,612,351 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,079 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.2. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 52% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 383,771 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 34th percentile – i.e., 34% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 301 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 66% of its contemporaries.
