  • Calcaneal fractures

    I am an MSc student in Biomedical Engineering, and my project is looking at
    the various implants used during fixation of calcaneal fractures, and
    comparing the stresses on different shapes and materials using Finite
    Element Analysis (ANSYS).
    I have found quite a lot of material concerning surgical procedures etc.
    but nothing comparing the different plates used. If anyone has any
    experience of this, or knows of any articles on it, I would be very
    grateful. Also, does anyone know of occasions when failures in these
    plates have occurred, either during or after bone healing, and if anything
    has been published on this.

    I will post a summary of results that I recieve. Please let me know if you
    do/do not want either your name or answer to be included.

    Thanks for your help
