The Acumed Calcaneal Plating System is designed to deliver a new level of performance, versatility, and reliability for calcaneal fractures. Our Calcaneal Plating System offers a minimally invasive approach that may reduce the potential for wound complications and soft tissue irritation.
Plates Specifically for a Sinus Tarsi Approach
An animated version of Acumed’s suggested method for implanting Mini-Calc Plates, part of the locking Calcaneal Plating System, specifically designed to target the quality bone in the calcaneus and minimize soft tissue irritation, while still providing a durable construct.
Dr. Jared Salinsky, used the Acumed Calcaneal Plating System to treat a nondisplaced calcaneus fracture in a 54-year-old male who fell from a ladder from a height of approximately four and a half feet. He was immediately seen in the emergency room where he was splinted and told to ice and elevate the foot and ankle. X-rays of his lumbar spine revealed no injury to the vertebrae. Upon his initial visit to the office he was found to have significant swelling and discoloration to the hindfoot. He had appropriate pain and was neurovascularly intact in the foot.
