Talocalcaneal Coalition Including Open Comminuted Calcaneal Fracture; A Case Report and Literature Review.

Bull Emerg Trauma 2019 Jan;7(1):80-83

Medical University of Graz, Department of Orthopaedics and Trauma, Graz, Austria.

Tarsal coalition is an often unrecognised cause of foot and ankle pain and represents a congenital osseous, cartilaginous or fibrous connection between two or more tarsal bones. Fractures in combination with tarsal coalitions are rarely described in the literature. We report the case of a 43-year-old male patient with a talocalcaneal coalition who sustained an open comminuted calcaneal fracture and a closed transverse cuboid fracture. Read More

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

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.
