The Spectrum of Indications for Subtalar Joint Arthrodesis

The preferred surgical approaches to subtalar fusion are the sinus tarsi incision, the medial incision, and the extensile lateral approach. The choice of one over the other depends on the underlying pathology, previous surgeries, associated foot pathologies, soft tissue quality, and medical comorbidities. This article reports on several cases of subtalar joint fusion. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
