Approach to the Ankle in Adult Acquired Flatfoot Deformity.
Adult acquired flatfoot is a progressive deformity of the foot and ankle, which frequently becomes increasingly symptomatic. The posterior tibial tendon is most commonly associated with the deformity. A targeted physical examination with plain film radiographs is the recommended initial assessment, which will further guide a physician toward procuring more advanced imaging or toward surgical intervention. In this chapter the authors review the current literature of their approach to the treatment of the ankle in end stage of adult acquired flatfoot deformity.
