transfixation in total dislocation of the talus and subtalar dislocations.
Anterior to this non-articular part is articular which articulates with talus bone to form talocalcaneal
joint, where inversion and eversion of foot occurs.
An Atkins procedure (namely a full thickness "L" incision on the lateral surface of the calcaneus with creation of a flap) should be preferred, not only because the neurologic structures, in particular the sural nerve, are protected along with Achilles tendon and the plantar fascia, (4) but also since it permits useful localization of the calcaneal insertion of the extensors retinaculum and talocalcaneal
and cacaneonavicular coalitions in the same foot.
The whole middle facet of the talocalcaneal
joint was involved (Fig.
The strong talocalcaneal
ligament stabilises the joint which is synovial with a single oblique axis that declines backward and laterally.
Lateral X-ray (d) showing the spacer following calcanectomy with talocalcaneal

Talocrural and talocalcaneal
joint kinematics and kinetics during the stance phase of walking.
The lateral tubercle is larger and serves as the attachment site for the posterior talofibular and the posterior talocalcaneal
Posterior capsulotomy of the talocalcaneal
and ankle joint were performed, and after complete releasing of the navicular bone, talonavicular alignment achieved.
Its inferolateral surface comprises a portion of the posterior facet of the talocalcaneal
joint, while its superolateral surface articulates with the lateral malleolus.
A last point is that because inversion and eversion involve three-dimensional movements at the talocalcaneal
and talocrural joints [39, 40], there is no fixed axis of ankle rotation in the frontal plane.
