Indications and results of the multi-hole GECO plate in the treatment of talar fractures of the calcaneus

Abstract

Since 1979, we have fixed certain fractures of the calcaneus with a GECO plate. This is a thin 0.5 mm multi-hole plate. Its value is to provide a support for the screw heads, when the lateral cortex of the calcaneus is fragmented. This is frequently the case, due to sinking of the talus which pushes out the lateral cortex which is broken in several places… (More)
