Abstract

BACKGROUND: In a prospective study we analysed intra-articular calcaneal fracture treatment by comparing results and complications related to frature stabilization with locking and nonlocking compression plates. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Our study 23 osteosynthesis(20 patients) of intra articular calcaneal fracture using the standard extensile lateral approach from July 2012 to July 2014.10 operation using locking plate,10 operation using nonlocking compression plate.In the Sanders type 4 fractures,reconstruction of the calcaneal shape was attempted .The patients were evaluated by the AOFAS Ankle Hindfoot Score. RESULTS: Wound healing complication,late subtler arthritic changes high in nonlocking compression plate.preoperative size of Bohlers,Gissanes angle correlated with post operativ and one year follow up clinical and radiological results in both groups.There were no late complications in locking compression plate group.All the late complication occur in the nonlocking compression group.The overall results according to the AOFASankle Hindfoot Score were LCP group better than the NONLOCKING group. CONCLUSION: Open reaction and internal fixation of intraarticular calcaneal fractures has become a standard surgical method.Fewer complications and better results related to treatment with locking compression plates confirmed in comparison to nonlocking ones were noted for all Sanders type of intraarticular calcaneal fractures
