The mechanism and pathoanatomy of the acute intraarticular calcaneal fracture is produced by axial loading. A combination of shear and compression forces produce two characteristic primary fracture lines. Shearing forces produce a fracture dividing the calcaneus into medial and lateral portions. This fracture line typically splits the posterior facet and can extend anteriorly to involve the anterior and cuboid facets. Compression forces divide the calcaneus into anterior and posterior portions… CONTINUE READING
