OBJECTIVE: The mini-invasive technique, through a sinus tarsi approach (STA), has become an increasingly popular choice for the treatment of calcaneal fractures. However, despite the good results reported, the complications related with internal fixation have not yet been analyzed. Using 3D reconstruction CT scans, we proposed doing biometric description of the calcaneus with the purpose of performing osteosynthesis as treatment for calcaneal fractures. METHODS: A total of 24 CT scans were retrospectively obtained from 22 consecutive patients with healthy calcanei and no history of surgery or fracture...

The treatment of calcaneus fractures is controversial. Historically, most operatively treated fractures have been approached with a lateral extensile incision requiring delay in operative treatment until swelling has improved. There is a current trend and interest in small incision approaches allowing, and in some cases requiring, earlier operative fixation. Clinical scenarios amenable to consideration for early fixation are reviewed. The sinus tarsi surgical approach and reduction techniques are outlined in detail...

BACKGROUND: The lateral extensile incision for fixation of displaced intra-articular calcaneus fractures allows for fracture reduction but has been associated with high rates of soft tissue complications. This has prompted a search for less invasive methods of fracture fixation. The purpose of the present study was to determine the adequacy of reduction and rate of complications associated with operative fixation of calcaneal fractures using a limited sinus tarsi approach. METHODS: A limited sinus tarsi incision with plate fixation was utilized for treatment of 39 displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures in 35 consecutive patients as part of a single surgeon series...

The ideal treatment of displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures is still controversially discussed. Because of the variable fracture patterns and the vulnerable soft tissue coverage an individual treatment concept is advisable. In order to minimize wound edge necrosis associated with extended lateral approaches, selected fractures may be treated percutaneously or in a less invasive manner while controlling joint reduction via a sinus tarsi approach. Fixation in these cases is achieved with screws, intramedullary locking nails or modified plates that are slid in subcutaneously...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical management of calcaneus fractures is technically demanding and has a high risk of wound complications. These fractures are traditionally managed with splinting until swelling has subsided, which can take weeks and leaves the fracture fragments displaced. We describe a novel protocol for the management of displaced intraarticular calcaneus fractures that utilises a temporising external fixator and staged conversion to plate fixation through a sinus tarsi approach...

BACKGROUND: There are conflicting data regarding the benefits of delaying operative fixation of calcaneus fractures to decrease wound complication rates. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of delaying fixation on wound complication rates as well as to identify other risk factors. METHODS: A retrospective review at 4 institutions, including 24 surgeons, identified 405 closed, operatively treated, intra-articular calcaneus fractures. We compared fractures with and without wound complications with regards to patient demographics, medical risk factors, fracture severity, time to fixation, operative approach, primary subtalar arthrodesis, and surgeon experience...

Calcaneus fractures in children differ from those in adults. Most calcaneus fractures in children can be managed nonoperatively, with good long-term results expected. The width and height of the calcaneus can remodel with time in children. Recently, there has been a trend toward operative treatment of displaced intra-articular fractures of the calcaneus in children to correct the articular deformity. Studies of calcaneal fracture fixation in children used an extended lateral approach, with its possible complications...

According to characteristic of anatomical structure of calcaneus and sinus tarsi approach, the minimally invasive plate for treatment of displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures had been designed. Here we aimed to review the effect of this treatment. Forty intra-articular calcaneal fractures in 38 patients from September 2006 to September 2008 were treated with percutaneous plate via sinus tarsi approach under the monitoring of C-shaped arms. All calcaneal anatomical parameters, including height, width, length, Böhlers angle and Gissane angle were measured by X-ray before and after surgery...

Peripheral nerve injury is a common problem in foot and ankle surgery. We look at evidence of nerve injury as it relates to different operative approaches to the fractured calcaneus. The direct lateral, extended lateral, smile, sinus tarsi, and percutaneous approaches are discussed and the reported incidence of nerve injury in each is identified. We expect to identify divergent rates of injury between approaches and stimulate further investigation into prevention and treatment.

BACKGROUND: The optimal method for treating intra-articular fractures of the calcaneus remains controversial. Extensile approaches allow excellent fracture exposure, but high rates of wound complications are seen. Newer minimally invasive techniques for calcaneus fracture fixation offer a potentially lower wound complication rate, but long-term clinical results are not available. The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes of intra-articular calcaneus fractures treated with open reduction and internal fixation via an extensile approach versus those with a minimally invasive sinus tarsi approach...
