Calcaneus Fracture clinical trials at UC Health
1 research study open to eligible people

  • External Fixation Versus Splinting of Acute Calcaneus Fractures

    open to eligible people ages 18-69

    Aim: - Determine if external fixation decreases soft tissue complications compared to splinting. - Determine if external fixation decreases time to definitive surgical stabilization and improves final fixation compared to splinting. - Determine if external fixation improves functional outcomes as evaluated by validated functional scoring systems. Hypothesis: - External fixation improves definitive fixation and functional outcomes of acute calcaneal fractures with decreased complication rates compared to splinting

    at UC Davis
