[1] In pes cavus, pronation becomes restricted due to the hypomobility in the subtalar and midtarsal joints, and the center of gravity of the body shifts medially.
The Midtarsal (MT) joint is in between ST joint and TMT joint which consists of two joints, namely, Talonavicular (TN) joint and Calca-neocuboid (CC) joint.
The model allows to separate the forefoot and the hindfoot and to analyze the midtarsal joint biomechanics.
In spite of all available measures, these two patients ultimately needed amputations- one was left midtarsal amputation, and another was right below-knee amputation.
Joints assessed included the distal interphalangeal, proximal interphalangeal, and metacarpophalangeal joints of the hands; the wrist, elbow, shoulder, acromioclavicular, sternoclavicular, temporomandibular, hip, knee, ankle, and midtarsal joints; and the metatarsophalangeal and proximal interphalangeal joints of the feet.
[8,13] In the case of pronation, the midtarsal bones tend to unlock the subtalar joint, which in turn causes the cuboid and navicular bones to become more parallel, allowing the forefoot and midfoot to unlock.
However, in addition to the long duration of postoperative recovery, some patients are at risk of serious side effects including reflex sympathetic dystrophy, flat foot or posterior tibial nerve injury, and calcaneocuboid and midtarsal joint pain [7,46].
This is known as a midtarsal break and is similar to what the Boston team identified in some of their participants.
Among the foot cases, midtarsal joints were frequently involved, while in a large series of foot and ankle tuberculosis, Calcaneus was involved frequently, followed by midtarsal joints.8 As in our study, the delay in the diagnosis of osteoarticular tuberculosis is very common.
If the midtarsal joint is flexible, it is generally agreed that gentle forces should be applied to orientate the forefoot so that the plane of the metatarsal heads are perpendicular to the vertical bisector of the calcaneus [5].
This is thought to lock the midtarsal joint and reduce any movement extraneous to the ankle joint (3).
