Lateral Column Lengthening for Revision Triple and Double Arthrodesis and Severe End-Stage Flatfoot Deformity.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2019 Feb 8. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

Attending Physician, Kaiser Permanente San Leandro, San Leandro, CA.

Few options exist for the treatment of revision and severe cases of end-stage flatfoot deformity. Triple arthrodesis or medial-approach double arthrodesis have been the standard but often do not provide enough correction of the deformity. Lateral column lengthening is a powerful procedure performed either with an Evans calcaneal osteotomy or calcaneocuboid distraction arthrodesis that can be used as an adjunct in realigning the flatfoot.

Repair of the Deltoid Ligament Using Posterior Tibial Tendon Autograft:A Novel Technique.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2019 Jan;58(1):165-170

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

Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD) is a progressive disorder secondary to advanced degeneration of the posterior tibial tendon, leading to the abduction of the forefoot, valgus rotation of the hindfoot, and collapse of the medial longitudinal arch. Eventually, the disease becomes so advanced that it begins to affect the deltoid ligament over time. This attenuation and eventual tear of the deltoid ligament leads to valgus deformity of the ankle.

Medial Approach to the Subtalar Joint.

Foot Ankle Clin 2018 Sep;23(3):451-460

Trauma and Orthopaedic Department, Aintree University Hospital, Liverpool University, Liverpool, UK. Electronic address:

Surgical access to the subtalar joint is required in a plethora of pathologic conditions of the hindfoot. The conventional lateral approach can give excellent access to subtalar joint; however, in hindfoot valgus deformities, there can be unacceptable risks of wound problems and incomplete deformity corrections. The medial approach offers good access to the subtalar joint with an increasing evidence base for its use, especially with double fusions in pes planus deformities. Read More

Management of a patient's gait abnormality using smartphone technology in-clinic for improved qualitative analysis: A case report.

Physiother Theory Pract 2018 May 8;34(5):403-410. Epub 2018 Jan 8.

b Department of Physical Therapy , Western Michigan University , Kalamazoo , MI.

Background And Purpose: Qualitative analysis has its limitations as the speed of human movement often occurs more quickly than can be comprehended. Digital video allows for frame-by-frame analysis, and therefore likely more effective interventions for gait dysfunction. Although the use of digital video outside laboratory settings, just a decade ago, was challenging due to cost and time constraints, rapid use of smartphones and software applications has made this technology much more practical for clinical usage.

Hindfoot Arthrodesis for the Elective and Posttraumatic Foot Deformity.

Clin Podiatr Med Surg 2017 Jul 8;34(3):339-346. Epub 2017 Apr 8.

Division of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery, Department of Orthopaedics, University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio, 7703 Floyd Curl Drive, MSC 7776, San Antonio, TX 78229, USA.

Triple (talonavicular, subtalar, and calcaneocuboid) joint arthrodesis and most recently double (talonavicular and subtalar) joint arthrodesis have been well proposed in the literature for surgical repair of the elective, posttraumatic, and/or neuropathic hindfoot deformities. The articulation of the hindfoot with the ankle and midfoot is multiaxial, and arthrodesis of these joints can significantly alter the lower extremity biomechanical manifestations by providing anatomic correction and alignment. This article reviews the indications and preoperative planning for some of the most common procedures to address the hindfoot deformity. Read More

Increased Failure Rate of Modified Double Arthrodesis Compared With Triple Arthrodesis for Rigid Pes Planovalgus.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2016 Nov - Dec;55(6):1169-1174. Epub 2016 Sep 7.

Assistant Professor, Division Head, Division of Foot and Ankle Surgery, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Virginia Health System, Charlottesville, VA.

For rigid pes planovalgus deformities, modified double and triple arthrodeses have had high union rates and subjective outcomes reported. Increased rates of talonavicular nonunions after modified double arthrodesis have led to concern regarding this procedure. A retrospective medical record review was performed of patients who had undergone either a modified double (n = 9) or triple (n = 7) arthrodesis for stage 3 pes planovalgus deformity. Read More

Trends in Complication Rates Following Ankle Arthrodesis and Total Ankle Replacement.

J Bone Joint Surg Am 2016 Sep;98(17):1453-8

University of California Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California.

Background: This study provides an updated comparison of the reoperation rates following primary ankle arthrodesis and total ankle replacement on the basis of observational, population-based data from California. We previously reported data from 1995 to 2004, and our current study includes new data from 2005 to 2010. Our hypothesis was that total ankle replacement would demonstrate increasing utilization and lower complication rates given advances in implant design and growth in surgeon experience. Read More

Thomas Bauer

Foot Ankle Clin 2016 Sep;21(3):629-40

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Ambroise Paré Hospital, West Paris University, 9 Avenue Charles de Gaulle, Boulogne 92100, France. Electronic address:

Hindfoot and midfoot fusions can be performed with percutaneous techniques. Preliminary results of these procedures are encouraging because they provide similar results than those obtained with open techniques with less morbidity and quick recovery. The best indications are probably fusions for mild-to-moderate reducible hindfoot and midfoot deformities in fragile patients with general or local bad conditions. Read More

The effects of gastrocnemius-soleus muscle forces on ankle biomechanics during triple arthrodesis.

Comput Methods Biomech Biomed Engin 2017 Feb 11;20(2):130-141. Epub 2016 Jul 11.

b Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering , Aalborg University , Aalborg , Denmark.

This paper presents a finite element model of the ankle, taking into account the effects of muscle forces, determined by a musculoskeletal analysis, to investigate the contact stress distribution in the tibio-talar joint in patients with triple arthrodesis and in normal subjects. Forces of major ankle muscles were simulated and corresponded well with the trend of their EMG signals. These forces were applied to the finite element model to obtain stress distributions for patients with triple arthrodesis and normal subjects in three stages of the gait cycle, i. Read More

Partial or non-union after triple arthrodesis in children: does it really matter?

J Child Orthop 2016 Apr 2;10(2):119-25. Epub 2016 Apr 2.

Northeast Ohio Medical University, Rootstown, OH, 44272, USA.

Purpose: Triple arthrodesis is a commonly performed salvage procedure to correct hindfoot deformity. Non-union is considered an undesirable radiographic outcome; however, the clinical ramifications of this are not as well defined. The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of partial or complete radiographic non-union after triple arthrodesis in children and characterize the clinical consequences. Read More

Secondary Arthrodesis After Total Ankle Arthroplasty.

Foot Ankle Int 2016 Jul 30;37(7):709-14. Epub 2016 Mar 30.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC, USA.

Background: While it is thought that stresses through the subtalar and talonavicular joints will be decreased after total ankle replacement (TAR) relative to ankle fusion, progressive arthritis or deformity of these joints may require a fusion after a successful TAR. However, after ankle replacement, it is unknown how hindfoot biomechanics and blood supply may be affected. Consequently, subsequent hindfoot joint fusion may be adversely affected. Read More

How Do Hindfoot Fusions Affect Ankle Biomechanics: A Cadaver Model.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2016 Apr 21;474(4):1008-16. Epub 2015 Dec 21.

Department of Foot and Ankle Surgery, Hospital for Special Surgery, 523 East 72nd Street, New York, NY, 10021, USA.

Background: While successful subtalar joint arthrodesis provides pain relief, resultant alterations in ankle biomechanics need to be considered, as this procedure may predispose the remaining hindfoot and tibiotalar joint to accelerated degenerative changes. However, the biomechanical consequences of isolated subtalar joint arthrodesis and additive fusions of the Chopart's joints on tibiotalar joint biomechanics remain poorly understood.

Questions/purposes: We asked: What is the effect of isolated subtalar fusion and sequential Chopart's joint fusions of the talonavicular and calcaneocuboid joints on tibiotalar joint (1) mechanics and (2) kinematics during loading for neutral, inverted, and everted orientations of the foot?

Methods: We evaluated the total force, contact area, and the magnitude and distribution of the contact stress on the articular surface of the talar dome, while simultaneously tracking the position of the talus relative to the tibia during loading in seven fresh-frozen cadaver feet. Read More
