WHAT IS TALAR SHIFT?

Had a good chat with @thesportsmedicineproject the other day regarding ankle injuries & syndesmosis injuries the other day. Unfortunately doctors often use a lot of medical jargon to explain injuries & features on an X-ray. One of those is "talar shift," which is a feature seen on some X-rays associated with ankle fractures & syndesmosis injuries. If present, patients are far more likely to need an operation. Watch these diagrams to work out what your treating professional might be talking about when they mention "talar shift" on your X-ray.
