Abstract

Intraarticular fractures of the calcaneus are a common injury to the hindfoot leading to posttraumatic arthrosis of the subtalar joint. Operative treatment with reduction and internal fixation at the time of initial presentation and once the soft tissue envelope is deemed suitable has become the standard of care for the surgical management of calcaneal fractures. However, numerous complications have been associated with calcaneal fractures, most notably subtalar joint arthrosis and calcaneal malunion. The authors describe a method of a delayed subtalar joint arthrodesis, ankle joint arthrodiastasis, and talar resurfacing with positive results for the management of painful posttraumatic concomitant arthrosis of the subtalar and ankle joints.
