Mechanical stability of a locked step-plate versus single compression screw fixation for medial displacement calcaneal osteotomy.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Reconstruction of a flatfoot commonly involves a calcaneal Medial Displacement Osteotomy (MDO) to correct hindfoot valgus in combination with soft tissue procedures. We compared fixation of an MDO using either a single, large cannulated screw versus a locking step-plate in load to failure in a cadaveric model. METHODS Eight matched pairs of… (More)
