Foot and ankle injuries due to motor vehicle accidents (MVAs) present unique challenges to the astute foot and ankle physician. Even more challenging than the pathology, however, is ability to return to pre-injury level. Published medical literature provides strong evidence for risk of post-traumatic arthritis after a heel bone (calcaneus) fracture - this post-MVA condition can manifest as residual deformity and resulting arthritis, thus precluding the ability to rapidly return to pre-accident levels. Hence it is imperative that an erudite foot and ankle clinician ascertain the appropriate treatment and long-term prognosis of foot and ankle injuries due to MVAs.
