Subtalar joint arthroscopy

Laurence G Rubin
Clinics in Podiatric Medicine and Surgery 2011, 28 (3): 539-50
Subtalar joint arthroscopy can be performed on a wide array of pathology. The procedure has progressed from a diagnostic test to a reconstructive procedure. Although it is not as popular as ankle arthroscopy, it is becoming more commonly discussed in the literature and is part of many arthroscopy courses. Better education along with improved instrumentation will allow more foot and ankle surgeons to treat pathology of the subtalar joint with arthroscopic techniques. This will lead to improved outcomes and lower complication rates in treating that pathology.
