BACKGROUND: Common reasons for juvenile neurogenic pes planovalgus are hypoxic brain damage, birth defects of the spinal canal, trauma and cerebral cancer. When symptoms persist despite conservative treatment of symptomatic pes planovalgus, surgery is indicated. Objectives of the operation are improved gait and mobilization as well as an improved basis for wearing shoes. Joint preserving and ankylosing procedures as well as combinations of both are available. The aim of this study was a retrospective comparison of the Grice/Green extra-articular arthroreisis versus the Evans calcaneal lengthening operation...

BACKGROUND: Arthrorisis (other terms: Arthrorhisis or Arthroreisis) with calcaneostop screw is one option for the treatment of flatfoot (Pes abductoplanovalgus) in children. The aim of the study was to analyze the amount of correction (for example Talo-1st Metatarsal-Index (TMT-Index)) and clinical outcome including pedographic assessment. METHODS: In a prospective consecutive non-controlled clinical follow-up study, all patients that were treated with arthrorisis with calcaneostop screw from September 1st 2006 to August 31st, 2009 were included...

BACKGROUND: A common question asked by patients contemplating foot and ankle surgery is whether the implants used will set off security screening devices in airports and elsewhere. Detectability of specific implants may require the orthopaedic surgeon to provide attestation regarding their presence in patients undergoing implantation of these devices. Only two studies have been published since security measures became more stringent in the post-9/11 era. None of these studies specifically focused on the large numbers of orthopaedic foot and ankle implants in use today...

Twenty patients with 25 symptomatic severe flexible pes valgo planus were treated with a combined surgical technique. All patients underwent an Evans calcaneal osteotomy with allogenic bone graft and subtalar joint arthroreisis (STA-Peg) procedure. Adjunctive procedures as deemed necessary included Achilles tendon lengthening, navicular-cuneiform fusion, Lapidus first metatarsal cuneiform fusion, Cotton medial cuneiform plantarflexory wedge osteotomy with allogenic bone graft, plantarflexory medial cuneiform osteotomy, and excision of os tibiale externum...
