[edit] Discussion

  • There are 2 types of calcaneal fractures: extra-articular and intra-articular.
  • If bilateral calcaneal fractures are seen, then the spine should also be evaluated for fracture as the mechanism of injury is often a large load to the axial skeleton, such as jumping from a second story window (Casanova's fracture).
