Subtalar arthrodesis with interposition tricortical iliac crest graft for late pain and deformity after calcaneus fracture.

Abstract

We are reporting our experience using tricortical interposition iliac crest grafting in the management of late pain and deformity after calcaneus fracture. Ten patients underwent this procedure, which was performed by the senior author. All but one were followed up with a questionnaire, physical examination, and repeat x-rays. The technique failed in one severely osteoporotic individual because of the graft sinking into the calcaneus. The experience led to two technique modifications that were evaluated in this study.
