BACKGROUND Chondral damage from the impact of injury may contribute to the high incidence of post-traumatic arthritis after calcaneal fractures, but this has yet to be proven. We sought to study the effect of intra-articular calcaneal fractures on chondrocyte viability and to correlate these effects with injury severity, time from injury to surgery, and patient age and co-morbidities. METHODS Irreducible osteochondral fragments from 12 patients undergoing operative treatment for intra… CONTINUE READING
