Open Reduction and Internal Fixation of a Pediatric Apophyseal Calcaneus Fracture Using Cannulated Screws: A Case Report
calcaneus fractures; cannulated screw; hardware; open reduction internal fixation; pediatric fractures
We report a case of a 12-year-old boy who sustained a displaced calcaneal apophysis fracture, which was analogous to a bony avulsion of the insertion of the Achilles tendon, secondary to an awkward landing while jumping at a trampoline park. Treatment with open reduction and internal fixation with cannulated screws provided a novel approach to fixation for this type of fracture in the pediatric population.
