Fracture-dislocation of the calcaneus is one of the most commonly missed injuries. At the same time this type of fracture almost always leads to gross dysfunction of the foot. Diagnostic problems are associated with poor visibility on the lateral view, which is often singular. At least one more view (Harris) is required to confirm the fracture. The surgery is indicated in the vast majority of cases, and the earlier it is performed, the technically simpler the manipulation and better the result. It is optimal to perform on the first day or in the first hours after the injury.
The patient came to us a month after the injury. She has already passed through several hospitals, where no proper diagnose was made. We performed the relocation and fixation. Considering the large fragments, fixation with screws only was sufficient.
