Message:
Abstract:
Background
The objective of this study was to evaluate the results of our experience in open reduction and internal fixation of fractures of calcaneus.
Methods
In a quasi experimental study، 20 patients with mean age of 35. 5 years (15-69 years) with calcaneus fracture - grade II and III- underwent surgery with open reduction and fixation in a 5-year period in a training hospital in Tehran-Iran. The patients'' profile، Bohler and Gysan angles before and after surgery were measured and statistically analyzed.
Results
Post surgery Bohler and Gysan angles showed significant improvement (p=. 000). Open surgery with internal fixation contributed to improving the angles. The questionnaire with a 4-6 months follow-up showed that the average American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) score and Food Function Index (FFI) score was good or excellent in 80% and fair in 20%. Overall، 7 patients had complications after surgery، which were controlled successfully painted patients have had good results after surgery.
Conclusion
The results of calcaneus fractures treated with open reduction internal fixation surgery have a positive effect and are in line with previous studies.
