[Repositioning and retention problems of calcaneus fractures].

[Article in German]


A new procedure is elaborated by the authors: the treatment of impression-fractures of the calcaneus. Exact repositioning is considered to be important. For this purpose, an apparatus for repositioning was constructed. The authors discuss the manoeuvres for exact repositioning. The repositioned fracture can be fixed well by two divergent ASIF cancellous bone screws to be inserted percutaneously after predrilling from the tuber calcanei. The stability of the osteosynthesis makes external fixation with plaster superfluous. This statement is based on the good results of 63 calcaneus fractures treated in this manner.
