The management of displaced, intra-articular calcaneal fracture represents a surgical challenge to even an experienced orthopedic surgeon. Plate osteosynthesis using an extended lateral approach is complicated by soft tissue problems, while those treated by closed reduction and percutaneous pinning cannot address all the intra-articular fragments sufficiently. The objective of our study is to evaluate restoration of subtalar joint and long-term functional outcomes in intra-articular displaced calcaneal fractures treated with transverse subcondral screws through a small incision on lateral aspect of calcaneus and percutaneously placed axial screws through the calcaneal tuberosity...

INTRODUCTION: Although the extended lateral approach is typically considered the gold standard of treatment for intra-articular calcaneal fractures, a limited lateral approach may be a good alternative in select cases. METHODS: Forty-seven consecutive patients with intra-articular calcaneal fractures treated using the sinus tarsi approach between March 2010 and April 2015 were retrospectively reviewed. The functional outcomes [including arc range of motion, Visual Analog Scale (VAS) score, and the American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society ankle/hindfoot (AOFAS) score], bony outcomes (bony restoration and bony union), and complications were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Calcaneal lengthening is used to correct symptomatic planovalgus foot deformity, but outcomes have been less satisfactory in children with cerebral palsy. This study aimed to define limits of calcaneal lengthening by analyzing the risk factors for undercorrection of deformity. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 20 cases of children with cerebral palsy who underwent calcaneal lengthening of 30 planovalgus feet at a mean age of 11.9 years. Foot deformities were evaluated by the anteroposterior talo-first metatarsal angle (normal, 10 ± 7...

Pain heel constitutes 15% of foot pain. Pain may be caused by plantar fasciitis, calcaneal fractures, calcaneal apophysitis, heel pad atrophy, inflammatory diseases or related with nerve involvement. Tibial, plantar and/or medial nerve entrapment are the neural causes of pain. Most of the heel soft tissue sensation is provided by medial calcaneal nerve. Diagnosis of heel pain due to neural causes depends on history and a careful examination. Surgery should not be undertaken before excluding other causes of heel pain...

Although avulsion fractures of the calcaneal tuberosity are rare injuries, these can be a challenging problem with frequent complications, such as loss of reduction and soft tissue problem. Anatomical reduction and internal fixation are indicated to avoid these pitfalls and to restore function of the triceps surae. However, the best fixation device and operative technique are still controversial. A case that achieved satisfactory clinical outcome through a reattachment technique using the suture bridge augmentation for Achilles tendon avulsion fracture with osteoporotic bony fragment is presented...

The goal of this paper is to report our experience with hindfoot fractures using our specially developed boot, with a follow-up of 557 cases. This boot works like the well-known Allgöwer-Röck ortheses (ARO), but is a hybrid between a boot and an orthesis. It allows full weightbearing without using crutches and completely protects an acutely operated hind foot fracture, hind foot arthrodesis or a hind foot fracture which is suitable for conservative treatment. In its first generation, this boot was custom made and used in 408 cases, from March 1999 to February 2011...

OBJECTIVES: Obese rheumatoid arthritis patients often have higher disease activity and a poorer response to treatment than do non-obese patients. The present study aims to clarify the influence of obesity on the action of IL-6 and to evaluate the efficacy of IL-6 signalling blockade in arthritis with obesity. METHODS: Mice were fed a high-fat diet for 5 weeks, and the influence of this diet on macrophages and type II collagen-induced arthritis was investigated. RESULTS: The mice fed the high-fat diet showed greater expression of macrophage marker F4/80, not only in subcutaneous fat but also in knee synovium and the calcaneal region, than did the mice fed a normal diet...
