memorize

 

Question Answer
Hardcastle Aeither homolateral or homomedial displacement of the metatarsals
Hardcastle Bpartial incongruity; not all metatarsals are displaced in the same direction
Hardcastle CDivergent; 1st metatarsal is medially dislocated, 2-5 are either partially or completely laterally dislocated
memorize

 

Question Answer
Rowe IAplantar calcaneal tuberosity fracture, secondary to eversion force (medial tuberosity) or inversion (lateral tuberosity)
Rowe IBshearing fracture of the sustentaculum tali of the calcaneus, secondary to inverted landing of the heel
Rowe ICanterior process of the calcaneus fracture, may appear similar to os calcaneum secundum, occurs as bifurcate ligament avulsion, secondary to adduction and plantarflexion
Rowe IIA"beak fracture" a lift-off of the posterior superior surface of the calcaneus; some cortex still intact, occurs when the heel strikes ground with knee extended and foot dorsiflexed
Rowe IIBavulsion fracture of the tendo achilles, a lift-off of the posterior surface of the calcaneus with complete dislocation
Rowe IIIAsimple fracture, oblique through calcaneal body and not involving the STJ, occurs secondary to a fall landing on both heels with the feet inverted or everted
Rowe IIIBcomminuted fracture, oblique through calcaneal body and not involving the STJ, occurs secondary to a fall landing on both heels with the feet inverted or everted
Rowe IVAsimple fracture, oblique through calcaneal body and involving the STJ
Rowe IVBcomminuted fracture, oblique through calcaneal body and involving the STJ
Rowe VAintraarticular STJ fracture with comminution and depression of the articular segment
Rowe VBIntraarticular fracture of the calcaneo-cuboid joint
memorize

 

Question Answer
Essex Lopresti IAcalcaneal tuberosity fracture; beak/medial avulsion fracture, vertical/horizontal body fracture (Rowe I and II)
Essex Lopresti IBcalcaneo cuboid joint involvement
Essex Lopresti IIAundisplaced STJ fracture, secondary fracture line exits posteriorly through calcaneus
Essex Lopresti IIBdisplaced STJ fracture, secondary fracture line exits orsally through calcaneus and a fragment dislocates
Essex Lopresti IICcomminuted STJ fracture
memorize

 

Question Answer
Sander's I (A, B, C)nondisplaced articular fracture of the calcaneus
Sander's II (A, B, C)two part fracture of posterior facet of the calcaneus
Sander's III (AB, AC, BC) three part fracture of the calcaneus with central depressed segment
Sander's IVcomminuted fracture of posterior facet of the calcaneus
memorize

Hawkin's II35-50% chance of AVN
Hawkin's III85% chance of AVN
Hawkin's IV100% chance of AVN
memorize

 

Question Answer
Berndt-Hardy Ismall area of compression in subcondral bone (talar dome)
Berndt-Hardy IIpartially detached osteochondral fragment (talar dome)
Berndt-Hardy IIIcompletely detaced osteochondral fragment, in crater (talar dome)
Berndt-Hardy IVcomplete osteochondral fracture, out of crater (talar dome)
memorize

 

Question Answer
Salter-Harris Ishearing force, separation of the epiphysis from the metaphysis w/o fracture
Salter-Harris IIfracture line extends through the physis and exits metaphysis, shearing or avulsion force
Salter-Harris IIIfracture line extends through physis and exits epiphysis (intraarticular) due to shearing force
Salter-Harris IVintraarticular fracture through epiphysis, physis and metaphysis
Salter-Harris Vcompression fracture, compacted germinal cells of physis die and cause premature closure
Salter-Harris VI (Rang)contusion of perichondral ring of physis, acts like type V if a bony bridge develops
Salter-Harris VII (Ogden)epiphyseal fracture not affecting physis
Salter-Harris VIII (Ogden)partial fracture of metaphysis, growth lines
Salter-Harris IX (Ogden)degloving, loss of periosteum on diaphysis
memorize
