Realignment Calcaneal Osteotomy for Bilateral Complete Talocalcaneal Synostosis: A Case Report.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2019 Mar 23. Epub 2019 Mar 23.

Professor, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, College of Medicine, Chungbuk National University, Cheongju, Korea.

Talocalcaneal synostosis is a congenital failure of the segmentation between tarsal bones. It may be very difficult to differentiate from talocalcaneal coalition, known as the most common tarsal coalition, especially in cases with a large bone bridge. Complete talocalcaneal synostosis is very rare, and there are few references in the literature about the clinical outcomes and operative methods for symptomatic synostosis. Read More

J Foot Ankle Surg 2019 Mar;58(2):337-340

Resident Physician, Department of Orthopedics, University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma City, OK. Electronic address:

Subtalar coalitions are a significant cause of morbidity, especially in the pediatric population. Arthrodesis was considered the standard of care, with coalitions involving >50% of the joint until the mid-1990s. Today, some are recommending resection of the coalition first and to save hindfoot arthrodesis as a salvage procedure. Read More

Occurrence of Lateral Ankle Ligament Disease With Stage 2 to 3 Adult-Acquired Flatfoot Deformity Confirmed via Magnetic Resonance Imaging: A Retrospective Study.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2019 Mar 21;58(2):243-247. Epub 2018 Dec 21.

Director of Residency Training, Division of Foot & Ankle Surgery, West Penn Hospital, Allegheny Health Network, Pittsburgh, PA. Electronic address:

Lateral hindfoot pain associated with stage 2 to 3 adult-acquired flatfoot is often attributed to subfibular impingement. Preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is generally performed to assess the extent of degeneration within the posterior tibial tendon, attenuation of medial soft tissue constraints, and degeneration of hindfoot and/or ankle articulations. The purpose of this study is to determine the incidence of lateral collateral ligament disease/injury associated with stages 2 and 3 adult-acquired flatfoot. Read More

Tarsal coalition in paediatric patients.

Orthop Traumatol Surg Res 2019 Feb 27;105(1S):S123-S131. Epub 2018 Mar 27.

Paediatric orthopaedics department, Seattle Children's Hospital, 4800 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle, Washington 98105, USA.

Tarsal coalition is due to failure of segmentation between two or more foot bones during embryological development at a site where the joint cleft fails to develop. Depending on the nature of the tissue connecting the bones, the abnormality is a syndesmosis, synchondrosis, or synostosis. Although the coalition exists at birth, synostosis usually develops only late during growth. Read More

Seven additional families with spondylocarpotarsal synostosis syndrome with novel biallelic deleterious variants in FLNB.

Clin Genet 2018 Jul 14;94(1):159-164. Epub 2018 Apr 14.

Department of Medical Genetics, Kasturba Medical College, Manipal Academy of Higher Education, Manipal, Karnataka, India.

The location and/or type of variants in FLNB result in a spectrum of osteochondrodysplasias ranging from mild forms, like spondylocarpotarsal synostosis syndrome and Larsen syndrome, to severe perinatal lethal forms, such as atelosteogenesis I and III and Boomerang dysplasia. Spondylocarpotarsal synostosis syndrome is characterized by disproportionate short stature, vertebral anomalies and fusion of carpal and tarsal bones. Biallelic loss-of-function variants in FLNB are known to cause spondylocarpotarsal synostosis syndrome and 9 families and 9 pathogenic variants have been reported so far. Read More

Associate, LaPorta & Associates, Dunmore, PA.

It has been proposed that patients with talocalcaneal and talonavicular coalitions have decreased ankle joint range of motion. It has also been reported that rotational forces regularly absorbed by the talocalcaneal joint are transferred to the ankle joint in patients with coalitions, increasing the stress on the ankle joint after trauma. To the best of our knowledge, only 1 reported study has detailed the increased stress placed on the ankle joint secondary to a coalition. Read More

In 1975, Evans published an article describing the surgical management of the "calcaneo-valgus deformity," pointing out that the deformity was due to relative shortening of the lateral column of the foot. Correction involved "equalizing" both columns by performing an osteotomy in the neck of the calcaneus 1.5 cm from the calcaneocuboid joint, where a trapezoidal wedge of tricortical bone was placed.

Fat Graft and Bone Wax Interposition Provides Better Functional Outcomes and Lower Reossification Rates Than Extensor Digitorum Brevis After Calcaneonavicular Coalition Resection.

J Pediatr Orthop 2017 Oct/Nov;37(7):e427-e431

*Department of Pediatric Orthopaedics, Sanatorio Allende, Córdoba, Argentina †ABC Medical Center, Mexico City, México ‡Saint Louis Children's Hospital, Washington University School of Medicine; and Saint Louis Shriners Hospital for Children, Saint Louis, MO.

Background: Calcaneonavicular coalitions are the most common form of tarsal coalitions. The prefered treatment for symptomatic coalitions is surgical resection; however, there are no published studies that directly compare different interposition techniques. The purpose of the present study was to retrospectively compare pain relief, functional outcomes, and complications of children and adolescents who had a resection of a symptomatic calcaneonavicular coalition with interposition of fat graft, bone wax, or extensor digitorum brevis (EDB).

Subtalar Coalitions: Does the Morphology of the Subtalar Joint Involvement Influence Outcomes After Coalition Excision?

J Foot Ankle Surg 2017 Jul - Aug;56(4):797-801

Attending Radiologist, Department of Radiology, Boston Children's Hospital, Boston, MA; Assistant Professor in Radiology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA.

Posteromedial subtalar (PMST) coalitions are a recently described anatomic subtype of tarsal coalitions. We compared with clinical patient-based outcomes of patients with PMST and standard middle facet (MF) coalitions who had undergone surgical excision of their coalition. The included patients had undergone surgical excision of a subtalar tarsal coalition, preoperative computed tomography (CT), and patient-based outcomes measures after surgery (including the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society [AOFAS] scale and University of California, Los Angeles [UCLA], activity score).

Massive Osteochondral Lesion of the Talus in a Skeletally Immature Patient Associated With a Tarsal Coalition and Valgus Hindfoot.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2017 Nov - Dec;56(6):1257-1262. Epub 2017 May 27.

Orthopaedist, Institute of Orthopaedics "Carlos E. Ottolenghi", Italian Hospital of Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Rarely, osteochondral lesions of the talus occur without a history of trauma. Accurate interpretation of the mechanical load distributions onto the ankle leading to potential atraumatic cartilage damage must always be studied. The published data on the optimal treatment of talar osteochondral lesions in skeletally immature patients are scarce, especially when the lesions are associated with hindfoot malalignment.
