Ankle joint distraction has been shown to be a viable alternative to ankle arthrodesis or ankle replacement. The authors' approach to ankle joint preservation includes articulated ankle joint distraction, resection of blocking osteophytes, release of muscle and joint contractures, and realignment osseous ankle procedures. In a previous study that used this(More)
BACKGROUND Anterior tibial tendon transfer is a common procedure for treatment of clubfoot recurrence. Fixation of the tendon usually includes passing the tendon through the lateral cuneiform. Drilling the bone and passing sutures through the plantar aspect of the foot may cause neurovascular damage. METHODS Anterior tibial tendon transfer was performed(More)
Metatarsal lengthening by distraction osteogenesis is a challenging procedure that is associated with various adverse results. This article presents and classifies adverse results arising from metatarsal lengthening. Our premise of classification is that not all adverse results that occur secondary to distraction osteogenesis of the metatarsal are true(More)
BACKGROUND Certain complex foot deformities can be corrected surgically with a U-osteotomy. This osteotomy is indicated for patients with a uniform deformity of the entire foot relative to the tibia, preexisting stiffness and/or fusion of the subtalar joint, and a pain-free ankle joint. The goal is to create a plantigrade foot through gradual osseous(More)
Open midfoot wedge osteotomy correction can cause neurovascular compromise, requires extensive exposure, sacrifices normal joints, and shortens the foot. We used a minimally invasive technique to treat complex foot deformities by combining percutaneous Gigli saw midfoot osteotomy, circular external fixation, and acute, gradual, or gradual with acute(More)
Many types of equinus exist in the pediatric population. This article reviews the causes, clinical and radiographic evaluation, and treatment of pediatric equinus deformity. It discusses the conservative and surgical management of the different types of equinus and when these treatments are best employed. The underlying pathophysiology for each equinus case(More)
