Biomechanical evaluation of two commonly used external fixators in the treatment of open subtalar dislocation--a finite element analysis.

Abstract

Subtalar dislocation is a rare injury caused by high-energy trauma. Current treatment strategies include leg casts, internal fixation and external fixation. Among these, external fixators are the most commonly used as this method is believed to provide better stabilization. However, the biomechanical stability provided by these fixators has not been… (More)
