CASE: A 49-year-old woman presented 5 months after a missed locked fracture-dislocation of the calcaneus. This was treated with a Taylor spatial frame for deformity correction before definitive open reduction internal fixation with subtalar fusion. She is now 4 and a half years postoperative with an active lifestyle and no pain.
CONCLUSIONS: Staged treatment using a Taylor spatial frame is a useful tool to address chronic locked chronic fracture-dislocations of the calcaneus.
