Surgical Management of Displaced Intra-Articular Calcaneal Fractures: What Matters Most?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures are severe, complex injuries that can cause significant long-term functional impairment. Despite the controversies of whether these fractures should be treated operatively or nonoperatively, functional improvement can be seen with confounding variables that can be controlled by the surgeon. This article reviews prognostic factors that are associated with good functional outcomes following operatively treated displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures.
