Subtalar dislocation (SD) is rarely reported in general orthopedic practice and accounts for only 1% of all dislocations. Seventy to 85% reported cases are medial SD, and rest are mostly lateral SD, with only occasional reports of anterior and posterior SD. Isolated SD without associated osseous fractures presents a unique clinical scenario. A universal approach cannot be justified for all Subtalar dislocations. Functional outcome of SDs is determined by three variables: prompt gentle reduction, the severity of the injury, and duration of postreduction immobilization.Prompt reductions did under local infiltration, sedation, general anesthesia, and spinal anesthesia have all been described. Injury severity is a confounding factor that cannot be influenced by either the patient or the surgeon. Subtalar stiffness and early-onset subtalar arthritis are the primary causes of poor functional outcome in SD. The causal relationship between prolonged immobilization and poor outcome in SD has been suggested.
