Abstract
The objective of this study was to evaluate the outcome of Open Reduction and internal Fixation treatment of displaced intraarticular calcaneal fractures. This prospective study was conducted on 10 patients (8 men and 2 women). The average age was 37.7 (22–55). The most common cause of injury was a fall from height in eight patients. Patients were operated on within a mean time of 6.2 days of admission (1–11 days) and were followed up for an average period of 12.1 months (6–18 months). Patients were evaluated clinically using the ROWE system. All fractures healed after an average of 8 weeks (7–10 weeks), and patients returned to the routine daily activities after an average time of 4.3 months (3–7 months). Excellent ROWE results were achieved in 4 cases (40%) good in 3 cases (30%), satisfactory in2 cases (20%), only one reported poor outcome. In conclusion Open Reduction and Internal Fixation is an effective treatment for cases of displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures.
