Type 4. Highly comminuted. Use coronal image wi e widest undersurface of e posterior facet of e talus. Lines A and B arate e calcaneus into medial, central and lateral columns. Line C corresponds to e medial edge of e posterior facet of e talus, . e Sanders classification is based on CT evaluation of calcaneus in coronal plane. e classification was published in 1992 and it takes into account location and number of fracture lines. Classifications, online calculators, and tables in radiology. Objective: To investigate e surgical techniques and results of open reduction and internal fixation for e treatment of Sanders type III, IV calcaneal fractures. Me ods: From uary 2004 to uary 20, 58 feet of Sanders type III, IV in 51 patients were treated wi open reduction and plate fixation rough L incision. ere were 29 males and 22 females, e age ranged from 17 to 58 Cited by: 2. Calcaneal fractures typically present after significant axial load (fall from ladder) or after motor vehicle accident. e talus is impacted, specifically e by lateral process, into e calcaneus creating a impaction type fracture. is typically creates common pattern seen. N2 - Our study was undertaken to assess e inter- and intra-observer variability of e classification system of Sanders for calcaneal fractures. Five consultant or opaedic surgeons wi different subspecialty interests classified CT scans of 28 calcaneal fractures using is classification system. After six mon s, ey reclassified e scans. 19, · e Sanders classification system is e most commonly used system for describing intraarticular fractures of e calcaneus, which account for e majority of calcaneal fractures (1,5,6). Extraarticular fractures are classified according to a tripartite anatomic division of e calcaneal surface. e Sanders classification system is e most commonly used system for categorizing intra-articular fractures. ere are 4 types: Type I fractures are non-displaced fractures (displacement Type II fractures consist of a single intra-articular fracture at divides e calcaneus into 2 pieces. Type IIA: fracture occurs on lateral aspect. 09, · In medical terms, my left heel fracture was classified as a Sanders 4 (IV) and e right heel was between a Sanders III and a Sanders IV. I was discharged on Sunday, ust 3, upon pain being under control when taken orally. 01, · Introduction. Calcaneal fracture, accounting for 60–65 of tarsal fractures and 1–2 of all types of fractures, has been regarded as one of e most common fractures in foot. 1 Calcaneal fracture often results in disability in varying degrees. 2 At present, it is reported at better clinical effects can be achieved in treating young patients wi intraarticular calcaneal fracture by. In at study, bo Sanders Type 2 and Sanders Type 3 and 4 displaced intra-articular calcaneus fractures were evaluated, and it was reported at no objective radiological or functional benefit could be determined from bone graft supplementation. 12 In contrast to ese more recent studies, Leung et al 24,25 stated at ORIF applied using bone graft was e treatment me od at should be e pri y preference for calcaneus fractures. While in e older studies e use of graft . e type-2 and 3 fractures are subdivided on e position of e articular fracture lines, producing types 2A, 2B and 2C, and types 3AB, 3AC and 3BC. e basis of e Sanders classification. e groups are denoted by e number of main fragments and e approximate main fracture lines as ked. I'm almost 26 years old, and I was in a horrible car accident in ober of 2004. I suffered a calcaneal fracture at involved e tibia/fibia as well as messed up bo of my knees. It's been 3 1/2 years and ings only get worse. I'm in a constant battle wi e pain. It's gets so . [2–4] In clinical cases, e main pa ological features of calcaneal fractures are collapse of subtalar joint articular surface, deformity of calcaneal body, and destruction of lateral wall. However, e case wi sanders type IIIAB calcaneal fracture wi out broken lateral wall has not been reported before. Sanders type 4 fractures of e calcaneum. We assessed e long-term outcome of 83 Sanders type 4 comminuted intra-articular fr actures of e calcaneum in 64 patients who underwent non-operative treatment between 1999 and 2005. Each fracture was treated by closed reduction and immobilisation in a long leg cast. Patients were reviewed every ree. e overall incidence of calcaneus fractures in children is relatively rare, wi reported incidence of 1 in 0,000 fractures. (Wiley, 1984) e type of fracture varies wi patient age. Children younger an 14 years typically have extra-articular fractures while older adolescents often sustain intra-articular injuries. Bone grafts were used in 16 (Group. Sanders Type 3/4=7/9) and not used in 13 (Group B. Sanders Type 3/4=8/5) calcaneal fractures. As a grafting material, only tri-cortical iliac crest bone autograft was used. All operations were performed by e same surgeon. e same locking plate was used in all fractures. Calcaneal height and angle of. 01, · Calcaneum e largest tarsal bone accounts for 60 of all tarsal bone injuries and 2 of all fractures. e management of e calcaneal fractures is still a challenge to or opedic surgeons. e aim of is study was to establish e best treatment, non-surgical or surgical for Sanders type II fractures. Type 4. Content Area. e distal ring is fixed to ree calcaneal wires and one talar wire. Six struts are connected between e rings and computer planning is carried out. After surgery gradual distraction is done in two steps. Two new wires are immediately inserted in e same track to protect e fibula from fracture. e fibula. Peter C.

He was unable to bear weight on his right foot. Diagnoses: Imaging studies confirmed at it was a sanders type IIIAB calcaneal fracture wi out broken lateral wall and e middle part of e posterior calcaneal articular facet collapsed. Interventions: ORIF of intraarticular calcaneal fracture wi e locking calcaneal. Surgical Treatment of Calcaneal Fractures Steven D. Steinlauf James B. Carr† Roy W. Sanders † eased. DEFINITION An intra-articular calcaneus fracture is an injury at involves e joint surfaces of e calcaneus, usually wi displacement. A fracture-dislocation of e calcaneus occurs when e superior lateral fragment of e posterior facet dislocates from benea e talus.

Fractures of e anterior process represent -15 of extra-articular injuries. ese are e only type of calcaneus fractures at are more common in women an in men. ere were 11 cases of Sanders type II fractures: 7 type IIA, 3 type IIB, and 1 type IIC. Five cases comprised type III fractures: 3 type IIIAB, 1 type IIIAC, and 1 type IIIBC.

Introduction Descriptions of calcaneal fractures exist since 1839 when compression mechanism causing is type of fracture has been described . In 1843 Malgaigne described is fracture and proposed a . middle fragment. Like type II fractures, type III fractures are also subdivided into types, AB, AC, and BC depending on e location and position of e fracture lines. Type IV fractures are highly comminuted four-part fractures (7). Calcaneal fractures result from high-energy trauma such as a fall from a height or motor vehicle collision. 30, · According to a retrospective review of 752 calcaneal fractures occurring over a -year period, e annual incidence of calcaneal fractures is 11.5 per 0,000, wi a male to female ratio of 2.4:1. Seventy-two percent of ese fractures resulted from falls. Intra articular fracture of e calcaneus demonstrates e presence of ree fracture lines (medial, central and lateral). All fracture lines are more an 2 mm gap. e fracture lines extends to e subtalar joint. No evidence of C fracture line (sustentacular line) reducing e fracture type from sanders type 4 to sanders type 3 AB. , · Park CH, Yoon DH.

Calcaneal stress fractures are treated by reducing e quantity and intensity of walking and a letic ac - tivities. Non-weight-bearing status wi crutches. Fractures of e calcaneus remain among e most challenging fractures for e or opaedic surgeon to effectively manage. In 1720, Garangeot, Petit, Desault, and Bilgner published case reports on calcaneal fractures and advocated immobilization until solid union. 177 Malgaigne, in 1843, first described calcaneal fractures in detail from cadaver specimens 93,153. however, ese fractures were.
