Fractures of the os calcis with intra-articular involvement can cause difficulty in treatment and can result in abnormal function throughout the ankle-foot complex. We evaluated the function of the ankle-foot complex and the overall gait pattern after fracture of the os calcis, and we compared the results of surgical and nonsurgical treatment. Those in whom the geometry of the os calcis and joint was restored by reconstructive surgery had better compensation of gait and a better clinical-functional score. Complex disturbances in gait were found in the group of patients that did not undergo open reduction or internal fixation.

Abstract

Fractures of the os calcis with intra-articular involvement can cause difficulty in treatment and can result in abnormal function throughout the ankle-foot complex. We evaluated the function of the ankle-foot complex and the overall gait pattern after fracture of the os calcis, and we compared the results of surgical and nonsurgical treatment. Those in whom the geometry of the os calcis and joint was restored by reconstructive surgery had better compensation of gait and a better clinical-functional score. Complex disturbances in gait were found in the group of patients that did not undergo open reduction or internal fixation.
