Displaced intra-articular fractures of the calcaneus
by Tim Schepers
Calcaneal fractures are one of the most disabling fractures in men. Treatment protocols for patient selection, choice of treatment modality, surgical approach to acute fractures and salvage procedures, and after-treatment have lowered complication rates and increased patient satisfaction. This book covers three aspects of calcaneal fracture treatment : classification systems, radiographic evaluation, and outcome scoring; the surgical treatment, including outcome and complications; dynamic pedobarographic analysis using the footscan® system, and the after-treatment and management of failed primary treatment.
