Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A review of 12 cases of transverse proximal diaphysial fractures 3.0 cm distal from the fifth metatarsal tuberosity with a 2-year follow-up is presented. Six cases treated with percutaneous pinning, cast, and partial weightbearing with crutches and six cases treated with cast, partial weightbearing, and crutches are analyzed by classification, age, and average time to union. The healing times were the same in both groups.
