BACKGROUND: This is a prospective clinical and radiological study of the treatment of talocalcaneal deformity or degeneration by a modified technique of isolated talocalcaneal fusion.
METHODS: Thirty-six patients were evaluated with clinical examination, plain dorsoplantar and oblique radiographs, and computed tomography scanning or magnetic resonance imaging in a follow-up of 32.5 months (range, 20-62 months). Indications for arthrodesis were posterior tibial tendon rupture with secondary osteoarthritis (12 cases) and secondary posttraumatic osteoarthritis (24 cases).
