I recently got a diagnosis of AVN in my right talus. A little back story, I had severe bilateral club foot when I was born, with corrective surgery at 4 months old. Pain in both feet/ankles my entire life, but the right has always been worse. They’ve always cracked and popped, but I was wondering if it’s “normal”? I recently had multiple x-rays, an MRI, CT and Three Phase Bone Scan with a diagnosis of AVN in the right talus.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
AVN of talus could be due to trauma, steriod abuse
and it can be idiopathic. Conservative and non conservative approaches are there for its management.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
