Pan Talar Dislocation
in a closed Injury
25 years old male sustained falling from height ( about 3 m.) which resulted in left ankle complete talus dislocation and right calcaneus fracture.
Astonishingly enough the dislocation is a closed injury.
1- What to do ?
2- What is the probable prognosis?

Look What we did .
On bases of Top emergency cases , patient was referred to OR where a trial of closed reduction was applied.
We were lucky enough to get its reduction closely.
Below Knee Slab was applied .
X-Ray was satisfactory , post op was eventless and the patient was informed about the late guarded prognosis.
