tal·i·pes val·'gus

pes valgus

Etymology: L, pes, foot, valgus, bent outward
deviation of the foot outward at the talocalcanean joint.
A rigid flatfoot deformity caused by a malpositioned navicular bone at the neck of the talus; the ankle is in severe equinus and the forefoot in dorsiflexion—i.e., rocker bottom-like—accompanied by contraction of the talonavicular, deltoid and calcaneal cuboidal ligaments, the peroneus brevis and triceps surae muscles. Rocker bottom foot is either isolated or accompanies trisomies 18 and 13
Management Early manipulation and plaster correction of the forefoot into plantar flexion, inversion and adduction; ‘benign neglect’ represents malpractice as rocker bottom feet ultimately require triple arthrodesis when ignored by the patient’s health care providers

Patient discussion about pes valgus

Q. Can flat feet be repaired by surgery? I have flat feet and I’m looking for all sorts of treatments for it- I heard there is a surgery for it- is it helpful?

A. As far as I know- they don’t treat flat feet that are asymptomatic. So first of all check if it bothers you. secondly there are 2 kinds of flat feet- rigid and flexible. There are different and treated differently. Not always a surgery (which is very painful and costly) is needed– I went to a Rolf method therapist by the advice of my orthopedic and it’s much better now. Ask an orthopedic.

Q. I think my son has flat foot, how to tell for sure? I didn't notice it before, he is 3 years old now and all shoes hurt him. Does it mean he has flat foot? what else can it be?

A. Pes planus (flat foot) is not a rare condition in toddlers, and may resolves spontaneously as the child grows. It is diagnosed clinically, i.e. by a doctor such as pediatrician or pediatric orthopedic surgeon, and radiographs are not universally indicated
