Excision of a Middle Facet Tarsal Coalition.

JBJS Essent Surg Tech 2020 Jan-Mar;10(1). Epub 2020 Feb 13.

Steps2Walk, Inc., Baltimore, Maryland.

Middle facet tarsal coalition is one of the commonly seen tarsal coalitions in clinical practice that can cause pain and associated flatfoot deformity. Excision of the coalition is one of the treatment options for symptomatic cases. Although symptoms may subside in children following a period of immobilization, resection should be considered as a treatment alternative for children and adolescents because of the potential for restoration of subtalar joint movement.

Optimal Surgical Management of Tarsal Coalitions.

Instr Course Lect 2020 ;69:371-380

Tarsal coalitions are common, but fortunately the majority of patients with coalitions are asymptomatic and do not require intervention. When symptomatic, preoperative radiographs and CT scans are useful to characterize the type and extent of coalition. If a trial of nonsurgical management fails, resection, deformity correction, and triple arthrodesis may be considered. Read More

Arthroereisis for Symptomatic Flexible Flatfoot Deformity in Young Children: Radiological Assessment and Short-Term Follow-Up.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2019 Sep;58(5):904-915

Community Doctor, Department of Medicine, National and Kapodistrial University of Athens, Athens, Greece.

The purpose of this study is to recognize those young patients with symptomatic flexible flatfoot deformity who need treatment and to provide radiological evidence that arthroereisis is capable of relocating the talus properly over the calcaneus. We included 28 feet in 14 children who underwent subtalar arthroereisis in association with percutaneous triple-hemisection Achilles tendon lengthening. Selected for arthroereisis were children with symptomatic flexible flatfoot deformity who complained of foot and leg pain, had decreased endurance in sports activities and long walks, who did not respond to conservative treatment modalities for at least 6 months, and in whom at radiological assessment on stance position with the medial arch support orthosis the talonavicular joint lateral subluxation still remained, with Meary's angle in anteroposterior (A/P) and lateral view remaining increased.

McDonald, Lewis Katz School of Medicine, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA, USA S. M. Raikin, Rothman Institute of Orthopaedics, 125 S. 9th Street, Suite 1000, Philadelphia, PA 19107 USA, Email:

Background: With the increase in the number of total ankle arthroplasties (TAA), guidelines on when physicians should begin to consider patients' return to driving are valuable. Further, due to sagittal motion strength, the ankle is the most important mover in braking motions over the knee and hip.

Questions/purposes: (1) Does brake-reaction time return to a safe value within 6 weeks of TAA? (2) Are there factors associated with a delay of return of brake-reaction time to safe values after TAA?

Methods: After obtaining institutional review board approval for the study, we prospectively recruited 60 patients undergoing right TAA. Read More

Analysis of biomechanical stresses caused by hindfoot joint arthrodesis in the treatment of adult acquired flatfoot deformity: A finite element study.

Foot Ankle Surg 2019 May 19. Epub 2019 May 19.

Applied Mechanics and Bioengineering Group (AMB), Aragón Institute of Engineering Research (I3A), Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain.

Background: Treatments of adult acquired flatfoot deformity in early stages (I-IIa-IIb) are focused on strengthening tendons, in isolation or combined with osteotomies, but in stage III, rigidity of foot deformity requires more restrictive procedures such as hindfoot joint arthrodesis. Few experimental studies have assessed the biomechanical effects of these treatments, because of the difficulty of measuring these parameters in cadavers. Our objective was to quantify the biomechanical stress caused by both isolated hindfoot arthrodesis and triple arthrodesis on the main tissues that support the plantar arch. Read More

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

J Foot Ankle Surg 2019 May 8;58(3):577-580. 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.

Mittal Ortho Centre, 97, New Lal Bagh Colony, Patiala, Punjab, 147001, India.

Aim/purpose: Extreme congenital club foot deformities are common in developing countries, presenting at birth, persisting in children, adolescents and adults; as untreated/under-corrected by conservative and/or surgical means. Scores of confusing names exist in literature for such deformities with no good treatment available; mostly advocating unacceptable arthrodesis. The author researched this grey area for more than 40 years and successfully innovated improved surgical corrections, more acceptable to patients. 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.

Valgus Hindfoot Deformity Secondary to Neonatal Intravenous Infiltration.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Jan;29(1):e80-e83

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery & Biomedical Engineering, University of Tennessee-Campbell Clinic.

Orthopedic complications of intravenous (IV) infiltration are rare, with only a handful of cases reported in the literature. Because of the relatively high rate of IV infiltration in neonates, however, such complications do occur and can include growth arrest, limb length discrepancy, and joint deformities that require surgical intervention. The risk of these complications is highest in preterm neonates. Read More

Cavovarus deformities in children and adolescents require sound considerations concerning the timing for corrective surgery. Progression can be recognized best by repeated pedographic examination with evaluation of the typical features of cavovarus deformity. Surgical correction consists of a combination of soft tissue release, bony realignment, and restoration of muscle balance. Read More

The Undercorrected Flatfoot Reconstruction.

Foot Ankle Clin 2017 Sep 3;22(3):613-624. Epub 2017 Jun 3.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Colorado School of Medicine, 12631 East 17th Avenue, Room 4508, Aurora, CO 80045, USA.

In symptomatic patients, undercorrection of a flatfoot deformity can lead to the need for revision surgery to restore functional mechanics and prevent progression of deformity. The underlying cause of undercorrection is failure to fully recognize or understand the extent of the deformity. This article discusses the typical deformities in adult flatfoot and indications for surgical intervention. Read More

Deltoid Ligament Repair in Flatfoot Deformity.

Foot Ankle Clin 2017 Sep 2;22(3):503-514. Epub 2017 Jun 2.

Institute of Foot and Ankle Reconstruction, 301 St. Paul Place, Baltimore, MD 21202, USA.

Deltoid ligament reconstruction allows for joint preservation of the ankle in the setting of patients a triple arthrodesis due to a flat foot deformity. Although the increased forces that may occur in the ankle joint after a triple arthrodesis cannot be eliminated, reconstruction of the ligament will delay and may prevent the onset arthritis, allowing the patient to maintain mobility of the ankle joint. The anatomy, surgery, and risks and benefits are discussed. Read More

Factors Predicting Length of Hospital Stay and Extended Care Facility Admission After Hindfoot Arthrodesis Procedures.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2017 Jul - Aug;56(4):805-812

Professor and Chair, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation, Boonshoft School of Medicine, Wright State University, Dayton, OH.

Delayed identification of patients requiring admission to extended care facilities (ECFs) can lead to greater healthcare costs through an increased length of hospital stay (LOHS). Previous studies of hip and knee arthroplasty identified factors associated with a likely discharge to an ECF. These issues have not been extensively studied for major hindfoot procedures. Read More

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
