In conclusion, this clinical scenario has proved to be a clinic conundrum. Unfortunately the surgical team may focus on the fracture and may overlook significant patient characteristics that could help in guiding optimal patient care. Operative management is the treatment of choice as long as complications can be minimized. Nonoperative care can lead to succes- ful results in select patients in a high percentage of cases. Percutaneous fixation and arthroscopic reduction are new are- as for scientific study. Key words: calcaneus intraarticular fracture, treatment options.
