Cavus Reconstruction

This kind of disorder is characterized by a high arch, constructed digits and instability of the foot and distal aspect of the leg muscle. Weakness and atrophy is common in cavus foot with a neurologic component.

The most common form of cavus foot requires bracing or surgery to provide a stable limb and prevention of pain and deterioration of other joints.

Procedures involving cavus foot reconstruction consist of osteotomies in the calcaneus or mid-foot with or without a tendon-transfer.

The goal of the reconstructive procedure is to lower the height of the arch and provide a more stable leg for ambulation.

Case Presentation: Patient with neurologic cavus foot deformity, symptoms are instability and weakness of the extremity.

Outcome: Stable limb with proper anatomical alignment for better ambulation.
