A 30-year-old male falls off the roof and sustains the injury seen in Figure A. Multiple attempts at a closed reduction are made, but are unsuccessful. Entrapment of which of the following structures is the most likely etiology?
Posterior tibial tendon
Anterior tibial tendon

Which of the following is true when comparing Figure A to Figure B?
Figure B is more likely to have an associated fracture
Figure A is more likely to be blocked from closed reduction by the extensor digitorum brevis
FIgure A is more likely to be open
FIgure B is more likely to be blocked from closed reduction by the posterior tibial tendon
Figure A more likely to be stable following closed reduction
A 34-year-old male falls 10 feet from a balcony and is brought to the emergency room with the deformity seen in Figure A. Radiographs shown are shown in Figure B and C. Which of the following structures can block closed reduction of this injury pattern?

Extensor digitorum brevis muscle
Tibialis anterior tendon
A 40-year-old male suffers the isolated injury shown in figure A with no associated fractures. What joint is dislocated in this radiograph?
HPI - fall from height ( 3 feet). at presentation in ER we attempted to reduce peritalar dislocation in iv. sedation, and due to a relative anatomic position of the foot we assumed that it was fine (marked swelling). finally, at the Rx control we realized that instead of reducing the subtalar joint, we dislocated the tibio-talat joint
how would you describe this lesion?
HPI - 21 yo male, volleyball injury.
Closed reduced in OR.
CT scan post reveals posterior medial talus fracture.
