G P DeRosa, S K Ahlfeld
Foot & Ankle 1984, 5 (3): 118-24
This is a retrospective study of seven patients with 10 feet displaying nonparalytic congenital vertical talus treated at Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis by open reduction without naviculectomy. Each of the 10 feet underwent an operation for open reduction of congenital vertical talus. The procedure included a peritalar soft tissue release, posterior release of the hindfoot with Achilles tendon lengthening, and transfer of the tibialis anterior tendon into the talar neck. Length of follow-up ranged between 2 and 11 years. Average follow-up time was 6 years and 9 months. Age at time of open reduction ranged from 8 months to 3 years. The clinical follow-up evaluation revealed three excellent, three good, and four fair results. Only one patient underwent a subsequent surgical procedure.
