Extensile lateral versus sinus tarsi approach for displaced, intra-articular calcaneal fractures: a meta-analysis.

J Orthop Surg Res 2018 Sep 24;13(1):243. Epub 2018 Sep 24.

Orthopaedics Department, Westmead Hospital, Corner of Hawkesbury and Darcy Roads, Westmead, Sydney, Australia.

Background: Operative management of displaced, intra-articular calcaneal fractures is associated with improved functional outcomes but associated with frequent complications due to poor soft tissue healing. The use of a minimally invasive sinus tarsi approach to the fixation of these fractures may be associated with a lower rate of complications and therefore provide superior outcomes without the associated morbidity of operative intervention.

Methods: We reviewed four prospective and seven retrospective trials that compared the outcomes from the operative fixation of displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures via either an extensile lateral approach or minimally invasive fixation via a sinus tarsi approach. Read More

Traumatic Injury to the Subtalar Joint.

Foot Ankle Clin 2018 Sep;23(3):353-374

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Kyungpook National University Hospital, 130 Dongdeok-ro, Jung-gu, Daegu 41944, Korea.

Traumatic injury to the subtalar joint occurs during subtalar dislocations, talar and calcaneal fractures, and fracture-dislocations. After closed reduction of subtalar dislocations, peripheral talar or calcaneal fractures need to be ruled out by computed tomography scanning. In fractures and fracture-dislocations of the talus and calcaneus involving the subtalar joint, anatomic reconstruction of joint congruity is essential for functional rehabilitation. Read More
