Experiencing Chronic Pain After an Injury?

You may have talar dome lesions

Talar dome lesions are usually caused by an injury, such as an ankle sprain. If your cartilage doesn’t heal, it softens and begins to break off. A broken piece of the damaged cartilage or bone may “float” in the ankle. These pieces of cartilage or bone are called talar dome lesions. You may have talar dome lesions is you experience:

  • Chronic ankle pain
  • Clicking or catching sensations in the ankle when walking
  • Locking sensations in the ankle
  • Swelling

It’s difficult to diagnose talar dome lesions because the site is hard to pinpoint. A foot and ankle surgeon at Bozeman Foot and Ankle Clinic will ask you about any recent injuries, examine your foot and perform X-rays to find out if you have talar dome lesions.
