Open Reduction of Calcaneal Fracture


Calcaneal fractures involving subtalar joint can be associated with prolonged and severe disability. Many different methods have been tried for the treatment in order to search for better results. From March 1983 to December 1985, 8 cases of calcaneal fractures involving subtalar joint were treated by open rcduction and internal fixation. and the results were as follows: 1. Satisfactory results were obtained from 7 cases out of 8. 2. Anatomic reduction was obtained by open reduction and internal fixation. 3. When medial approach failed, combined lateral and medial approaches gave better visualization of articular fecets and ensured anatomic reduction.
