Minimally invasive treatment of calcaneal fractures via the sinus tarsi approach based on a 3D printing technique.

Math Biosci Eng 2019 02;16(3):1597-1610

Department of Hand Surgery, Department of Plastic Reconstructive Surgery, Ningbo No. 6 Hospital, Ningbo, 315040, China.

The sinus tarsi approach can be used for a limited exposure of the calcaneal fracture site. The reduction of the posterior articular surface, the shape of the calcaneus, the precise placement of the sustentacular screw (SS), the posterior articular surface screw of the calcaneal (PASS), and the long axis screw of the calcaneal (LAS) are still challenging. To that end, we proposed a minimally invasive technique for the treatment of calcaneal fractures via the sinus tarsi approach in combination with a three-dimensional (3D) printing technique.

Sinus Tarsi Approach with Subcutaneously Delivered Plate Fixation for Displaced Intra-Articular Calcaneal Fractures.

Clin Podiatr Med Surg 2019 Apr 24;36(2):225-231. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Kaiser Permanente Santa Clara and GSAA, 710 Lawrence Expressway, Department 140, Santa Clara, CA 95051, USA.

Displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures can be treated with open reduction and internal fixation through various methods, including the extensile lateral approach, sinus tarsi approach, percutaneous reduction and fixation, external fixation, and calcaneoplasty. Although the gold standard is the extensile lateral approach, this method has significant wound-healing complications associated with it. Literature shows that the reduction achieved through minimally invasive techniques is equal to that achieved with the extensile lateral approach, while reducing the amount of postoperative complications.

Three-Dimensional (3D) Computed Tomographic (CT) Assessment of the Sustentaculum Tail to Find Distinctive Characteristics: Implications for Surgery.

Med Sci Monit 2018 Nov 22;24:8417-8421. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Department of Orthopedics, Affiliated Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital of Southwest Medical University, Luzhou, Sichuan, China (mainland).

BACKGROUND With the complexity of calcaneal fracture (CF) increasing, its treatment has changed to include inserting the screw used to secure the facies articular posterior into the sustentaculum tail (ST). Some research progress has been made in this area, but there has been little in-depth research on the anatomical morphology of the sustentaculum tail, which is necessary for clinical surgery, and more information about Chinese anatomic characteristics and improved surgical techniques for CF are needed. MATERIAL AND METHODS This anatomical study, based on a three-dimensional (3D) computed tomographic (CT) reconstruction technique, included 287 dry calcaneus, consisting of 144 left and 143 right calcaneus.
