Calcaneal osteotomy with OrthoSolutions FRS Locking Plate


Subscribe to get full access to this operation and the extensive Foot Surgery Atlas.


A Calcaneal locking plate provides very robust fixation and optimally maintains the hard fought for displacement achieved performing a  Calcaneal osteotomy.

It is associated with low rates of implant removal and does not require image intensification necessarily during operation.

However it self evidently requires an open technique , as opposed to screws which can be used with minimally invasive/percutaneous techniques. It is possible to fix the osteotomy in distraction at the osteotomy site unless care is taken.
