The treatment of displaced intraarticular fractures of the calcaneus continues to challenge the orthopaedic community. The recent development of prognostic classification systems based on computerized tomography has clarified the roles of non-operative and operative treatment. It has also opened the door for further prospective study of the appropriate treatment of this injury and comparison of operative methods. Based on current literature and our experience, we recommend CT evaluation of all intraarticular fractures of the os calcis in patients who are operative candidates with treatment guided by fracture classification.
