Background: 75% of calcaneal fractures are intra articular. Treating calcaneal fractures is a challenge for orthopaedic surgeon due to the complex fracture pathology. A wide range of treatment options varying from non operative to operative methods are available. The purpose of this study is to assess the functional outcome of conservatively treated and operatively managed intra articular calcaneal fractures. Methods: 24 intra articular fractures have been classified as per Computerized Tomography based Sanders system.12 fractures were treated conservatively.12 fractures were treated with open reduction and internal fixation with plating. . Functional outcome was assessed using Modified Rowe score after following the cases over mean period of 18 months.
