A New Standard of Treatment for Calcaneal
Calcaneal fractures are the most common tarsal
bone fractures and they are challenging to treat.
The extensile lateral incision, which is today’s most
common approach, often results in nearly 30% of
patients developing wound complications.1
With the expertise of Greg A. Horton, MD and
Steven A. Herbst, MD, Acumed® has developed a
family of calcaneal plates specifically designed for
a minimally invasive approach using a sinus tarsi
incision, a technique with less chance of wound
complications when compared to extensile lateral
While this kind of incision is not new, its
use for calcaneal fractures in conjunction with the
Acumed® MINI-Calc™ Plates is a revolutionary step
forward in the treatment of calcaneal fractures.
