Assistant Professor, Division of Foot and Ankle Surgery, Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine, Independence, OH.

Coalitions of the hindfoot are a relatively rare but challenging condition encountered by foot and ankle surgeons. Those that manifest between the cuboid and navicular (cubonavicular coalitions) are seen even more infrequently and are estimated to comprise ∼1% of all tarsal coalitions. Treatment for cubonavicular coalitions parallels protocols for more common hindfoot coalitions. Read More

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

An Incidental Finding of a Talonavicular and Talocalcaneal Joint Coalition After a Tibial Pilon Fracture: A Case Report.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2017 Nov - Dec;56(6):1332-1334. Epub 2017 Aug 18.

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.

Department of Radiology, University of Missouri, 3801 Kinsey Court, Columbia, MO 65203, USA. Electronic address:

Abnormalities of the medial ligaments and posterior tibial tendon can occur because of acute injury or chronic instability or malalignment. Medial ankle injuries may occur because of pronation or supination-external rotation injuries. Deltoid ligament injuries have a significant impact on lateral ankle instability but can be overlooked in patients with lateral ligament injuries. Read More

Calcaneonavicular Coalition with Naviculocuneiform and Cuneiform-First Metatarsal Coalitions A Case Report.

Bull Hosp Jt Dis (2013) 2016 Jun;74(2):165-7

Coalitions involving three joints of the midfoot are rare. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a patient having fibrocartilaginous coalition of the calcaneonavicular joint along with partial osseous fusion of the naviculocuneiform (Chopart's joint) and medial cuneiform-first metatarsal joints. These multi-coalition pathologies are challenging to address operatively as pain can persist even after recognizing and surgically addressing each coalition in a patient. Read More
