Cedell fracture (1974)
Posterior talar process fracture with injury to the medial tubercle caused by forced dorsiflexion and pronation. First described in 4 patients by Cedell in 1974
Isolated rupture of the posterior talotibial ligament is probably a very rare injury. The author has diagnosed this ligament injury in four portsmen, who had a chronic state of insufficiency with medial pain and swelling in the ankle joint. Clinical examination revealed the occurrence of a bony and tender formation behind the medial malleolus which at operation was found to be an unhealed avulsion fragment belonging to the medial tubercle of the talus.Cedell 1974
