Various studies comparing operative and non-operative intervention for displaced intrarticular calcaneal fractures have reported conflicting findings in the past. The objective of this meta-analysis was to compare the efficacy and safety of open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) vis-a-vis conservative management. Relevant randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing operative and non-operative intervention for displaced intraarticular calcaneal fractures were assessed and included in this meta-analysis...

Calcaneal apophyseal fractures are usually considered sport-related injuries. Previous repetitive microtrauma has been proposed as a predisposing factor for such injuries. However, unlike previously reported cases, in our patient, the fracture resulted from acute trauma after stepping on uneven ground. Although the first treatment option for such cases is closed reduction, most cases will require surgical treatment. Furthermore, lesions accompanying this injury have not been sufficiently considered. We report the case of a 9-year-old female with a calcaneal apophyseal fracture treated by fixation of the avulsed proximal part of the apophysis using Kirschner wires and a cerclage wire...

INTRODUCTION: Tongue-type displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures (DIACF) are associated with a specific pattern of fracture displacement in contrast to joint depression fractures. This may result in tension of soft tissue in the posterior part of the heel. Tension-induced ischemia can result in skin necrosis. The objectives of this study were to investigate whether patients with tongue-type calcaneal fractures exert a higher risk of complications, especially of the posterior soft tissues, than joint depression type fractures...

BACKGROUND: Calcaneal insufficiency avulsion (CIA) fractures often present with neuropathic etiology, such as Charcot neuroarthropathy (CN). Under the same surgical procedures, the outcomes of CIA fractures are less desirable, compared to the outcomes of the traumatic calcaneal avulsion fractures. Here, the study suggests Achilles tenodesis technique using suture anchor after resection of the CIA fracture fragments could provide satisfactory clinical results in the cases of surgically indicated CIA fractures...

Avulsion fractures of the calcaneal tuberosity are predominantly seen in patients with poor bone quality, the commonly used lag screw fixation might not be strong enough even with bony fragments of sufficient size. We present a case of a closed displaced avulsion fracture of the calcaneal tuberosity due to blunt trauma to the calf in a 74-year-old female. Open reduction and internal fixation with two 3.5-mm cannulated cortical screws with washers was performed, and anatomic reduction was achieved. Without further trauma, secondary displacement of the fracture occurred on day 3...

Calcaneal fractures are notoriously difficult to treat and wound complications occur often. However, owing to the rare nature of these fractures, clinical trials on this subject are lacking. Thus, biomechanical studies form a viable source of information on this subject. With our systematic review of biomechanical studies, we aimed to provide an overview of all the techniques available and guide clinicians in their choice of method of fracture fixation. A literature search was conducted using 3 online databases to find biomechanical studies investigating methods of fixation for calcaneal fractures...

The calcaneus is the most commonly fractured tarsal bone. Displaced intraarticular calcaneal fractures are usually caused by a fall from height with one or both heels directly hitting the ground. Displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures are complex and highly disabling injuries. There is ongoing debate regarding the optimal treatment for each type of displaced intra-articular calcaneal fracture. This review aims to summarize the classification of, various treatment options for, prevention of perioperative complications in, and management algorithms for displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures...

INTRODUCTION: Precise placement of sustentaculum tali screw(s) is essential for restoring anatomy and biomechanical stability of the calcaneus. This can be challenging due to the small target area and presence of neurovascular structures on the medial side. The aim was to evaluate the precision of positioning of the subchondral posterior facet screw and processus anterior calcanei screw with or without a Screw Targeting Clamp. The secondary aim was to evaluate the added value of peroperative 3D imaging over 2D radiographs alone...

Intraosseous lipoma of the calcaneus is a benign lesion formed by mature adipose tissue. When the lesion is symptomatic, the most frequent presentation is localized pain and soft tissue swelling. Because these lesions can regress spontaneously, conservative treatment methods are recommended. Operative excision is mostly required for painful lesions and pathologic fractures. The data from 14 patients with calcaneal intraosseous lipoma, who had undergone surgery in our clinic, were evaluated retrospectively. Using Milgram's classification system, 9 lesions were classified as stage 1, 4 as stage 2, and 1 as stage 3...
