ABSTRACT About 0.6% of all fractures is an intra-articular calcaneal fracture. Patients often have additional injuries, and returning to work can take up to one year. The diagnostics consist of plain, lateral and axial, radiographs of the calcaneus. In addition a CT-scan is performed in three planes. Because of the lack of a standardised classification and disease specific outcome-scores there is no agreement on the best treatment modality. More randomised controlled trials are mandatory in the future to determine the best treatment modality for the different types of intra-articular calcaneal fractures.
