Aim: To evaluate the results of plate osteosynthesis in intra-articular calca- neus fractures and to de ne methods to be followed to reduce complication rates. Material and Method: The study included 45 calcaneus fractures of 43 patients treated at our centre between 2010-2013. The patients were 36 males and 7 females with a mean age of 40.6 years. Plate osteosynthesis was applied to all the patients with an extended lateral incision. Results: Clinical evaluation of the patients was made using the Maryland Foot Score. Radiological evaluation was made according to change in the Böhler and Gissane angles. The follow-up period was mean 25 months (range, 12-38 months). With the exception of 5 patients, good and excellent results were obtained. Discussion: Results of this study were similar to previous studies in the literature in the success of early and mid-term successful plate osteo- synthesis. The use of less invasive methods could be a treatment alternative in patients at risk of complications, such as those who are smokers or have Type II diabetes.
