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 study was based on a series of 74 fractures, all of them studied with 3D CT and 71 of which were operated. METHOD The previous… CONTINUE READING
