Objective: To observe and analyse the effect of small incision poking reduction and Kirschner wire fixation on the treatment of Sanders type II calcaneal fracture.
Methods: According to the different treatment plan, 80 cases with Sanders type II calcaneal fractures were selected as the objects. They were divided into two groups and the patients in study group were treated with small incision reduction and internal fixation with Kirschner wires while the patients in control group received open reduction and internal fixation with plate followed by the observation and analysis of therapeutic effect in each group.
Results: The results showed that there was no significant difference in excellent rate of treatment between the two groups. The operation indexes were compared as well, which included the operation time, intra-operative blood loss, incision healing time and hospitalization time. The results showed that all the indexes mentioned above in the control group were less than those in the observation group. But there was no significant difference in postoperative Bolher angle, Gissane angle, calcaneal width and Maryland foot score between the two groups.
Conclusion: The treatment of small incision reduction and internal fixation with Kirschner wires is beneficial to the rehabilitation of the patients with Sanders type II calcaneal fracture.Author(s): Juncai Ye, Jing Nie, Zhineng Chen, Hongyong Zhao
