Calcaneal Fracture Repaired via Sinus Tarsi Incision
FOOT & ANKLE SURGERY PHOTOS AND VIDEOS
47 yo male falls from tree stand.
Unremarkable pmhx aside from 1/2 ppd smoker.
Sinus tarsi incision is the ticket.
Nanoscope nicely aids reduction.
Its nice to get the calcaneus out of varus, but ultimately , its all about the joint surfaces.
The nanoscope allows easy access/visualization to the entire joint. Being able to show a patient the joint surface clinically is a nice practice adjuvant.
This patient healed great with zero incision healing issues.
@dkblacklidge taught me this technique – ideal for application at a county hospital. Its prevented need for flaps, I&D’s and surgeries that go with lat extensile.
