Fractured anterior calcaneal process

J Foot Surg. Jan-Feb 1988;27(1):43-6.


The case report of an intra-articular calcaneal fracture is presented. The case is noteworthy because the entire anterior process was fractured and dislocated into the subtalar joint. Treatment consisted of open reduction and internal fixation with good results. The literature was reviewed and an aggressive treatment posture adopted in order to prevent the long-term disability often associated with this type of injury.
