Purpose: This study compared the clinical effectiveness and wound complications of a three-dimensional model-assisted spatial weaving screw fixation (3D-SWSF) versus open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) via an L-shaped extensile lateral approach for calcaneal fractures.
Methods: This single-centre retrospective cohort study was conducted with two cohort groups in which patients with Sanders II and III calcaneal fractures underwent 3D-SWSF or conventional ORIF. The clinical outcome measures included operation duration, time to operation, wound complications, blood loss volume, hospital stays, American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) Ankle-Hindfoot score, and visual analog scale (VAS) score.
