Dependsthe severity: For talus fractures surgery is indicated if the fracture position is unstable or is affecting the subtalar joint. The result of the mri is important to evaluate the tendons around the fracture, if there is damage that can not be seen on plain X-ray and determine an AVN. The talus is one of a kind bone because it lacks of direct vascularity, so a precise diagnosis will avoid complications
