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

Transepiphyseal (Type VII) Ankle Fracture Versus Os Subfibulare in Pediatric Ankle Injuries.

J Pediatr Orthop 2018 Nov/Dec;38(10):e593-e596

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA.

Background: Pediatric ankle injuries are common, giving rise to ∼17% of all physeal injuries. An os subfibulare in a child with an ankle sprain may be confused with a type VII transepiphyseal fracture. Here, we evaluate the clinical and radiographic features of type VII transepiphyseal fractures to those of os subfibulare presenting with acute ankle trauma with the hypothesis that radiographs are necessary for final diagnosis and neither clinical history nor examination would be diagnostic.

Fractures of the Lateral Process of the Talus.

Foot Ankle Clin 2018 Sep;23(3):375-395

Departement of Surgery, Kantonsspital Graubünden, Loëstrasse 170, Chur 7000, Switzerland. Electronic address:

Lateral talar process fractures (LTPF) are uncommon injuries but have become more relevant with snowboarding. Currently the fractures are classified according to McCrory-Bladin into 3 types, with advice for treatment that is not ideal anymore. This article proposes modifying the existing classification by differentiating the multifragmented type III into 3 subtypes: IIIa, articular multifragmented but metaphyseal simple; IIIb, articular and metaphyseal multifragmented but reconstructable; and type IIIc, comminuted and nonreconstructable.

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
