Avulsion fractures of the calcaneal tuberosity remains rare; they usually caused by forced ankle dorsiflexion; direct trauma occur infrequently; it must be treated immediately; to avoid the skin necrosis of the posterior heel; the treatment approach is of interest in this rare injury and the operative management is based on a review of the literature. ; Non operative treatment is classically associated with bad results. Hence the surgical intervention is generally the treatment of choice. The authors report two cases of unusual avulsion fractures of the calcaneal tuberosity treated by open reduction and internal fixation with a good functional result.
Dislocation of the shoulder joint with fractures of the humerus on the same side is rare; the literature related to this rare injury is limited to few case reports. We present a case of a 43-year-old, who suffered from a job-related accident and sustained fractures of midshaft and distal humerus associated to ipsilateral anterior shoulder dislocation and fracture of greater tuberosity; after reduction of the anterior shoulder dislocation. The treatment was surgical and demonstrated a successful outcome at one year follow-up.
