New York State Medical Treatment Guidelines for

Hindfoot Fractures in workers compensation patients

The New York State workers compensation board has developed these guidelines to help physicians, podiatrists, and other healthcare professionals provide appropriate treatment for Hindfoot Fractures.

These Workers Compensation Board guidelines are intended to assist healthcare professionals in making decisions regarding the appropriate level of care for their patients with ankle and foot disorders.

The guidelines are not a substitute for clinical judgement or professional experience. The ultimate decision regarding care must be made by the patient in consultation with his or her healthcare provider.

Hindfoot Fractures (Calcaneaus, Talus)

  1. Diagnostic Studies for Hindfoot Fractures in workers compensation patients for X-Rays

    Diagnostic Studies for Hindfoot Fractures in workers compensation patients for X-Rays is Recommended are as a primary investigation for possible acute hindfoot


    Indications: Suspicion of fracture.

    AP, lateral, and calcaneal views of the talus; AP, lateral, and Mortise, 45° internal oblique Broden views, and talar Canale views neck).


  2. MRI of Hindfoot Fractures

    MRI of Hindfoot Fractures is recommended Regarding a possible acute occult talus fracture and Calcaneus.

    Indications – usually used only when there is a possibility of a hidden fracture of the lateral process or the talus neck. those patients whose simple pictures show those with an osteochondral lesion and those who are still symptomatic six weeks later should get an MRI evaluation.


  3. MRI for Follow-up Evaluation of Non-acute Calcaneus Fracture

    MRI for Follow-up Evaluation of Non-acute Calcaneus Fracture is recommended for calcaneus fractures in order to detect problems in patients with non-acute fractures.

    Indications: patient with non-acute fracture and more prolonged pain than 4 months following the injury.

    Rationale for Recommendations: Since certain talus fractures are not visible on radiography, MRI is employed when one is suspected of having a hidden fracture. Avascular necrosis can also be evaluated with MRI. MRI is generally less effective for calcaneus injury than CT scan.


  4. Bone Scanning for Calcaneus Fracture

    Bone Scanning for Calcaneus Fracture is recommended for the detection of stress and hidden fractures in certain Patients.

    Rationale for Recommendation: If you have a high clinical suspicion but a negative x-ray and CT scan, you might be justified in doing a bone scan. Occult calcaneus fractures and calcaneus stress fractures are diagnosed using bone imaging.


  5. CT for Diagnosis and Classification of Hindfoot Fractures

    CT for Diagnosis and Classification of Hindfoot Fractures are recommended for the examination of fractures in the rearfoot.

    Indications: For occult and difficult distal extremities, CT is advised. ankle and foot fractures to better understand how the fractures are displaced, Affected joints’ articular involvement and subluxation. If particular Axial views are advised when displacement is taken into to any coronal views, if any. CT is recommended for the assessment of fractures of the subtalar joint suspected. Coronal and axial views.

    Rationale for Recommendation: CT scans are regarded as the best. a benchmark for identifying and classifying calcaneus fractures. For When x-ray pictures show further hindfoot fractures, CT should be taken into account. are negative. However a hidden fracture is suspected based on physical findings strong suspicion CT may also be helpful for complex object evaluation.

    Comminuted fractures, which offer a better representation of the distal tibial involvement of the articular surface, placement of the fragment, and identification of subluxations. The benefits of CT have been established through Evaluation, comminution, and treatment of articular step off and gaping has led observers to alter treatment strategies created from Radiographs.

    Follow-up Visits – Imaging For talus fracture, if clinically suspected in the setting of negative radiographs, follow-up radiographs may be helpful; after approximately seven days there will be resorption at the fracture line, which will then be visible more easily.

    Follow-up radiography at six to eight weeks for confirmed talus fracture, looking for the Hawkins sign, a radiographic subchondral radiolucent band in the talar dome. This sign, visible in the anterior-posterior view, is indicative of viability at six to eight weeks postfracture indicating that avascular necrosis is unlikely to develop.

Medications of Hindfoot Fractures

Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) and Acetaminophen

Ibuprofen, naproxen, or other NSAIDs from an earlier generation are suggested as first-line treatments for the majority of patients. A viable substitute for acetaminophen (or its homolog paracetamol) NSAIDs for individuals who are not NSAID candidates, despite the majority of evidence hints that acetaminophen is just marginally less effective.

There is proof that NSAIDs are equally as effective as opioids, such as tramadol, for relieving pain. Impairing.

  1. Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) and Acetaminophen for Hindfoot Fractures Analgesia

    Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) and Acetaminophen for Hindfoot Fractures Analgesia are recommended for hindfoot fracture analgesia.

    Indications: NSAIDs are advised as a kind of treatment for hindfoot fracture analgesia. First, try over-the-counter (OTC) medications to see whether they work.

    NSAIDs for Patients at High-Risk of Gastrointestinal Bleeding is recommended Patients who are at a high risk of gastrointestinal bleeding should take misoprostol, sucralfate, histamine type 2 receptor blockers, and proton pump inhibitors concurrently.

    Indications – Cytoprotective drugs should be taken into consideration for patients with a high-risk factor profile who also have indications for NSAIDs, especially if a prolonged course of treatment is planned. Patients who have a history of gastrointestinal bleeding in the past, the elderly, diabetics, and smokers are at risk.

    Frequency/Dose/Duration – Misoprostol, proton pump inhibitors, Sucralfate and H2 blockers are advised. dosage and repetitions per manufacturer. There isn’t typically thought to be anything there. varying degrees of effectiveness in preventing gastrointestinal bleeding

    Frequency/Duration: throughout the day as necessary, then only at nighttime later, until entirely weaning off.

    Rationale for Recommendation: NSAIDs don’t provide enough pain relief for certain individuals, therefore using opioids wisely may be beneficial.

    especially for use at night. Opioids are advised for limited, specific use in recovering patients, with nighttime use being the main goal Postoperatively.

DVT Prophylaxis of Hindfoot Fractures

See the Achilles tendon rupture section’s section on DVT prophylaxis.

Rehabilitation of Hindfoot Fractures

Rehab (supervised formal therapy) needed after a work-related injury should be concentrated on regaining the functional ability needed to meet the patient’s daily and work obligations and enable them to return to work, with the goal of returning the injured worker to their pre-injury status to the extent that is practical.

Active therapy calls for the patient to put in an internal effort to finish a particular activity or assignment. The procedures known as passive therapy rely on modalities that are administered by a therapist rather than the patient exerting any effort on their side.

Passive therapies are typically seen as a way to speed up an active therapy programme and achieve concurrently objective functional gains. Over passive interventions, active initiatives should be prioritised.

Instructing the patient to continue both active and passive therapies provided at home as an additional step in the healing process to keep up the improvements.

To facilitate functional gains, assistive devices may be used as an adjuvant measure in the rehabilitation strategy.

  1. Diathermy for Management of Edema Associated with Calcaneus Fracture

    Diathermy for Management of Edema Associated with Calcaneus Fracture is not recommended for treating edoema brought by by calcaneus fractures.


  2. Diathermy for the Control of Edema: Evidence Physical and occupational therapy therapeutic exercise

  3. Non-Operative Management of Osteochondral Lesions of the Talus

    Non-Operative Management of Osteochondral Lesions of the Talus is recommended for select patients.

    Indications:For initial care of lateral lesions that radiographically appear to be a compression lesion with no visible fragment or with a fragment that is visible but still connected, a non-operative approach is recommended.

It was the afternoon of Friday Sept. 24. We were in Pt. Jefferson and my wife, Mary Ann, broke her hip. We went to Mather Hospital and it was determined that she would have to have an operation to have it repaired. This would be her third time under the knife in the past year. It just so happened that we were very fortunate enough to have Dr. Karkare, who was on standby, perform the surgery. He put in a rod and two screws in her hip. She spent a few days in the hospital and then went to Gurwin rehabilitee for another few weeks.It has now been almost six weeks and we both worked the election the other day. If it wasn’t for Dr. Karkare’s expertise she never would have been able to work. She is able to walk with a walker and is doing physical therapy three times a week.We can not thank the doctor enough for the compassion and dedication that he puts into his work. It allows Mary Ann do the things that she likes to do, even on a limited basis for a while. I know that with her will, perseverance and the great work that the surgeon performed she will be back on her feet in no time.Sincerely:John V. PlumpEast Northport, NY 11731

In the year of 2018 I was referred to Dr. Karkare because I was experiencing severe knee joint pain. After exhausting physical therapy and trying to labor through the pain, I had to make a quality of life decision. Total knee replacement was the only viable option. Dr. Karkare made my decision easy as he walked me through the whole process from surgery to recovery.On 12/13/19 ( Friday the 13th) I enter Lenox Hill Hospital in great hands. From the time I entered Dr. Karkare’s office for the first time until now, his staff has been amazing. Andrea the medical coordinator walked me through all the paper work and necessary preparations for the surgery. Courtesy and kind would be an understatement. Dr. Karkare went over and beyond from the wellness checks and phone calls all to assure me that I was important to him. This was the right decision no pain and no limp. Complete Orthopedics should be your choice!

I suffered with pain in both knees for years. My orthopedic doctor kept recommending knee replacement . I fought it for years, as I was just afraid. When I had no choice and could barely walk , it was recommended I see Dr. Karkare. We set up a consultation and my wife and I left his office feeling totally confident and comfortable with moving ahead with the surgery. He explained everything to us, and the office staff set everything up for us and made the process easy. So about one month after our initial meeting I had the first knee done. I was up walking mere hours after the surgery, and on the workout machines the next morning. I went home two days after the surgery, and yes walked my daughter down the aisle at her wedding only one week after the surgery without even a cane! Three months later I had the other knee done and went home the very next day. Dr. Karkare put my fears to rest . I would highly recommend him. His expertise gave me my life back. Thank you Dr. Karkare.SincerelyVito Congro
