Description The aim of our study is to evaluate the functional outcome of intra-articular calcaneal fractures treated with openreduction and internal fixation, as measured by the AOFAS Scoring system, the mean duration of union, and associatedcomplications. 26 patients with intra- articular fractures of the calcaneum were treated with open reduction and internal fixation using 3.5mmlocking calcaneal plates. Patients were followed up regularly 6 weeks, 12 weeks and 6 months.The average time for union in all the 26 patients was 12.77 weeks. The functional outcome was good in 17 patients, fair in 7 patients and poor in 2cases. The complications associated with plating were more in Sander's type III fractures. We are of the opinion that surgery is the choice oftreatment; and attaining anatomical reduction gives a better functional outcome.
