Assessing outcome following calcaneal fracture: a rational scoring system.

Author information

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Frenchay Healthcare Trust, Bristol, UK.


Six existing clinical scoring systems for assessing outcome after calcaneal fracture are reviewed. All were applied to a diverse group of 75 patients who had sustained this injury. Stepwise multiple regression analysis was used to identify the most relevant variables within these systems. Based on this, a simplified and rational outcome scoring system was devised. This system was then tested on a further group of 41 patients and shown to comply well with the characteristics required of an objective outcome score.
