Although open reduction and internal fixation is considered the best method for treating displaced articular fractures of the calcaneus, lateral approach is at high risk for wound healing complications. For this reason, the authors developed a posterior approach and a new implant to perform both intrafocal reduction and internal fixation. The aim of this(More)
UNLABELLED Three dimensional CT scans enables to visualize the calcaneum and to follow the fracture pattern without any risk of errors. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY This technique has been used to validate our previous classification (using three forms: vertical, horizontal, and mixed) which resulted from a two dimensional tomodensitometric study. MATERIAL The(More)
The best treatment for intra-articular fractures of the calcaneus is still debated. The aims of this study were to determine whether intrafocal reduction of thalamic fractures is effective, to evaluate whether a locking nail is able to maintain reduction of the articular surface and to analyse the functional results of this original method. This prospective(More)
BACKGROUND Nowadays, open anatomic reduction and internal fixation can be considered as a valuable treatment for displaced intra-articular fractures of the calcaneus. However, the application of a calcaneal plate via an extensile lateral approach is at risk for a substantial rate of complications including delayed healing, skin necrosis, or infection. There(More)
La réduction ostéosynthèse à foyer ouvert des fractures thalamiques du calcanéus est considérée comme la meilleure méthode thérapeutique, mais les complications liées à la voie d’abord latérale sont évaluées entre 15 et 30 %. L’abord extensif nécessaire pour placer les plaques anatomiques et l’enraidissement lié au traumatisme de la gaine des fibulaires ont(More)
