PurposeTibialis anterior tendon transfers (TATT) are commonly performed in young children following Ponseti casting for clubfeet. The classic TATT involves advancing the tendon through a hole drilled in the ossified cuneiform. The aim of this study was to determine if tendons transferred through unossified bones have untoward effects on subsequent bone development.MethodTwenty-five piglets underwent one of five surgical procedures. An 18-gauge needle was then used to place a tunnel through the… CONTINUE READING
