Simultaneous Use of Lateral Calcaneal Ostectomy and Subtalar Arthroscopic Debridement for Residual Pain After a Calcaneal Fracture

November 15, 2014

Inadequate primary treatment of calcaneal fractures frequently results in persistent, residual pain. This can be caused by subtalar arthritis, an increased calcaneal width, and/or calcaneal fibular impingement of the peroneal tendons. Many patients experience multiple disorders simultaneously, requiring a combination of procedures to treat the injury
