Addressing osteochondral lesions of the talus
from Podiatry Today
Osteochondral lesions of the talus can be a difficult and frustrating pathology for foot and ankle surgeons to treat. The etiology of osteochondral lesions of the talus is frequently attributed to ankle trauma but these lesions can also stem from alcohol abuse, chronic steroid use, endocrine abnormalities or genetics. Researchers have reported an occurrence of up to an astounding 73 percent in ankle fracture cases and 42 percent in people with lateral ankle instability.
