Abstract:Materials and Methods: Between Febraury 2012 and December 2015, 28 Patients with intra-articular calcaneal fractures were treated with calcaneal plates (locking and non-locking) using standard extended lateral approach to calcaneum. Patients were evaluated by history, physical examination and radiography. Fractures were assessed by preoperative CT Scans in selected complex fracture patterns. Bone grafts were not added when a locking plate was used. Treatment results were evaluated by AOFAS Ankle-Hindfoot Scale at different follow-up periods ranging from 6months to 3years.
