Core Tip Undisplaced talar neck fractures in children rarely present with an associated osteochondral loose body. If a child remains symptomatic after fracture healing we would advocate further evaluation with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan to exclude an associated loose body. If a loose body or an osteochondral lesion is identified on MRI scan it can be safely treated with anterior ankle arthroscopy.
