There is an increased interest in load-sharing devices for tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis. Although the neurovascular anatomy of the heel has been well described, the purpose of this study is to consider heel anatomy as it relates to plantar heel incisions and to well-defined fluoroscopic landmarks to prevent complications during these procedures. Twenty lateral radiographs of normal feet while standing were evaluated by two observers. The distance from the calcaneocuboid (CC) joint to a line… CONTINUE READING
