Table 2 Annual distribution of the operative calcaneus fractures methods at the Traumacenter Linz from 2007 to 2015. Almost the entire patient collective was treated by the minimally invasive technique with the 2-point distractor (85.8% versus 10.8%), which represents a large study collective and indicates the effectiveness of this technique
