Abstract

Calcaneal fractures are the most common type of tarsal fracture, and comminuted and bursting fractures are common due to the anatomic characteristics of the calcaneus. Assessment and treatment of calcaneal fractures has improved significantly over time. Despite advancements in surgical techniques and equipment, these fractures remain difficult to treat. In this review article, the physiopathology, classification, and surgical treatments of displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures are updated.
