Abstract

We have devised a new scoring system using visual analogue scales (VAS) to determine the functional outcome in 15 patients with 20 displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures, confirmed by CT. The average follow-up was 19 months. A VAS was completed separately by the patient, the surgeon and an independent assessor. It showed satisfactory agreement between observers and strong correlations with a General Health Survey (SF36), a pain scale (McGill Pain Questionnaire) and a disease-specific, historical scale for calcaneal fractures (the Rowe score).
