Abstract

Subtalar joint dislocation also known as “acquired clubfoot”, involves dislocation of the talocalcaeneal and the talonavicular joints with a normal tibiotalar joint. It constitutes 1-2% of all dislocations. Subtalar joint dislocation following basketball injury is a rare occurrence. We report a case of medial subtalar joint dislocation in a 19 year old male while playing basketball managed with prompt closed reduction with percutaneous kirschner-wire fixation and by immobilisation for 6 weeks followed by progressive weight bearing, physiotherapy and rehabilitation.
In this case report, we discuss the mechanism of injury and the treatment of subtalar dislocation. This case report highlights the use of appropriate shoes customised to the anatomy of the player’s foot and demand during the game as the need of the hour to prevent such ankle injuries.
