In general, the talocalcaneal
joint, a major synovial subtalarjoint, is functionally important for ankle movements such as in version and eversion of the foot.
Further, per Sanders/Fryberg type IV, an involvement of the subtalar and talocalcaneal
joints was visible in radiographs in 1 foot solely and 2 feet additionally.
In the clinical setting, lateralization of the force vector in the acquired flatfoot deformity was demonstrated to cause hindfoot impingement including talofibular, talocalcaneal
, and calcaneofibular and subsequent stress fracture of the distal fibula [2, 3, 20].
transfixation in total dislocation of the talus and subtalar dislocations.
Anterior to this non-articular part is articular which articulates with talus bone to form talocalcaneal
joint, where inversion and eversion of foot occurs.
An Atkins procedure (namely a full thickness "L" incision on the lateral surface of the calcaneus with creation of a flap) should be preferred, not only because the neurologic structures, in particular the sural nerve, are protected along with Achilles tendon and the plantar fascia, (4) but also since it permits useful localization of the calcaneal insertion of the extensors retinaculum and talocalcaneal
Many anatomic studies have demonstrated that the majority of calcanei have a conjoined anterior and middle talocalcaneal
articular facet [13, 14].
The condition's development follows posterior tibial tendon dysfunction with several ligaments implicated in the disease including the spring and deltoid ligaments, plantar tissues, and the talocalcaneal
interosseous ligaments .
The whole middle facet of the talocalcaneal
joint was involved (Fig.
The subtalar joint (talocalcaneal
jt.) is a major shock-absorbing joint, because in coordination with the intertarsal joints it determines the distribution of forces upon the skeleton and soft tissues of the foot.
