Subchondral cyst of the talar dome
Posted in the Orthopaedic Surgery Forum
#1 Feb 18, 2011
A male 25 years of age with a symptomatic 20x16 mm subchondral cyst of the talar dome. The original orthopedic surgeon who diagnosed it recommended immediate surgery, but got a second opinion from another surgeon. He felt that the outcome of surgery was fairly uncertain and that male should try to live with it. It has been over two years since the original diagnosis and the symptoms have worsened to the point where they interfere with daily function. Should surgery be seriously considered? If so what type is suggested and what are the probably outcomes?

If you have extremely painful attacks of arthritic pain and swelling your eventually going to have to have surgery. I've had subchondral cyst in my tibia just above the ankle for years. The pain attacks have become way to bad to put off surgery any longer. I understand there are several surgery options. The one that sounds best to me is to drill into the cyst then clean it out and pack it with bone material. I made this sound kinda easy but its not. There are other steps needed to be done prior to the surgery and it's a long recovery. I'm having trouble finding a doctor that has experience doing the surgery.

I am a doctor in the UK and just assisted in a surgery for a subchondral talar cyst. I would definitely recommend having it done. Find a good Foot and Ankle orthopaedic surgeon and they sould be able to do the surgery
