Open Technique for In Situ Subtalar Fusion


Wirth, Stephan H; Zimmermann, Stefan M; Viehöfer, Arnd F (2018). Open Technique for In Situ Subtalar Fusion. Foot and Ankle Clinics, 23(3):461-474.

Abstract

The subtalar joint plays an important role for the hindfoot when accommodating during gait. Joint degeneration may be caused by posttraumatic, inflammatory, and pathologic biomechanical changes. Once conservative treatment has failed, subtalar fusion should be considered. The indication for surgery is based on thorough clinical and radiographic evaluation. Several techniques for subtalar fusion are published in literature. This article aims to describe a technique for in situ arthrodesis of the subtalar joint, paying special attention to biomechanical aspects as well as preoperative clinical and radiological work-up.
