Published medical literature provides strong
evidence for risk of post-traumatic arthritis
after a heel bone (calcaneus) fracture – this
post-MVA condition can manifest as residual
deformity and resulting arthritis, thus
precluding the ability to rapidly return to preaccident levels. Hence it is imperative that an
erudite foot and ankle clinician ascertain the
appropriate treatment and long-term
prognosis of foot and ankle injuries due to
MVAs.
