Extract

Most calcaneal fractures occur in male industrial workers, making the economic importance of this injury substantial. Many authors have reported that patients may be totally incapacitated for as long as three years and partially impaired for as long as five years after the injury1,11,39,73,94,133. Although modern operative intervention has improved the outcome in many patients, there still is no real consensus on classification, treatment, operative technique, or postoperative management. In this article, the current thinking regarding the treatment of these very difficult fractures will be reviewed.
