To overcome the substantial functional loss after calcaneal fractures (CF), surgical treatment currently consists of two strategies, namely the commonly used extended lateral approach (ELA) and the less invasive sinus tarsi approach (STA). Despite the comparable anatomical restoration, the biomechanical and functional outcome of these strategies during early rehabilitation has not yet been investigated.
