What is Bohler angle?

What is Bohler angle?

Böhler angle: The angle between line from highest point of anterior process to highest point of posterior facet plus line tangential to superior edge of tuberosity; measured on lateral foot x-ray. Normally 20-40°. If < 20° represents a calcaneal fracture (or more specifically a collapse of the posterior facet)

What is the CPT code for ORIF calcaneus fracture?

CPT® Code 28415 in section: Open treatment of calcaneal fracture, includes internal fixation, when performed.

What is Gissane angle?

The Gissane (crucial) angle is formed by two strong cortical struts extending laterally, one along the lateral margin of the posterior facet and the other extending anterior to the beak of the calcaneus.

What is the ICD 10 code for calcaneal fracture?

ICD-10-CM Code for Fracture of calcaneus S92. 0.

Where is angle of Gissane?

Gissane’s angle (critical angle): Is located directly through the inferior process to the lateral process of the talus bone and in normal healthy non-fractured calcaneal bone is ranged from 120° to 145°. The Gissane’s angle consisted of the downward and upward slopes of the calcaneal superior surface.

How do you find the angle of a Gissane?

The Gissane angle is measured by drawing lines along the superior surfaces of the anterior process and the posterior facet of the calcaneus to meet at the calcaneal sulcus 1.

What is the ICD-10 code for left calcaneus fracture?

ICD-10-CM Code for Displaced fracture of body of left calcaneus, initial encounter for closed fracture S92. 012A.

What is ICD-10 code for calcaneal osteotomy?


How do you measure a Gissane angle?

What is the normal talocalcaneal angle?

The talocalcaneal angle measurement is shown. The normal range is 15-40°. Dorsoplantar views obtained in a patient with unilateral clubfoot show that the talus and calcaneus are more overlapped than in the normal condition.

What is talocalcaneal?

Medical Definition of talocalcaneal 1 : of or relating to the talus and the calcaneus. 2 : relating to or being the articulation of the talus and the calcaneus.

How do you measure Meary angle?

Meary’s angle (talo-first metatarsal angle) was measured as the angle between the line originating from the center of the body of the talus, bisecting the talar neck and head, and the line through the longitudinal axis of 1st metatarsal.

How do you measure Bohler’s angle?

Böhler’s angle can be measured with the use of two intersecting lines: one drawn from anterior process of the calcaneus to the highest part of posterior articular surface and a second drawn from the same point of posterior articular surface to the most superior point of tuberosity.
