Novel Technique for the Treatment of Calcaneal Tuberosity Fractures

Parekh, Selene G. MD, MBA*,†

Collapse Box


Calcaneal fractures account for 60% of all tarsal fractures; however, tuberosity fractures only comprise 1% to 2% of these. Treatment of the displaced calcaneal tuberosity has traditionally included open reduction internal fixation with a variety of means or percutaneous techniques to reduce the fracture. We describe our technique for excision of the calcaneal tuberosity fragment with repair of the Achilles tendon supplemented by a flexor hallucis longus tendon transfer.
