OBJECTIVE: To assess the curative effect of the subtalar arthrodesis on the serious subtalar joint with the posterior tibial tendon dysfunction. METHODS: From October 2000 to February 2006, 31 patients (18 males, 13 females; age 23-62 years, averaged 36.4 years) with serious subtalar joint osteoarthrisis and stage II posterior tibial tendon dysfunction were treated by the subtalar arthrodesis. The tibial tendon dysfunction involved 15 right and 16 left lower extremities, which were caused by retrograde osteoarthritis in 14 patients, sequel of an injury in 8 patients, infection in 7 patients, and anatomic structural abnormity in 2 patients...
