Effects of posterior tibial tendon augmented with biografts and calcaneal osteotomy in stage II adult-acquired flatfoot deformity

, : Effects of posterior tibial tendon augmented with biografts and calcaneal osteotomy in stage II adult-acquired flatfoot deformity. Foot & Ankle Specialist 2(1): 27-31

Adult-acquired flatfoot deformity (AAFD) is a well-known condition leading to flexible flatfoot deformity. However, only recently have the function and muscle strength for balancing opposing muscles been more appreciated in laboratory studies. With the advancements in collagen science in tendon structure, the rationale and concept of some of the most common procedures in tendon transfer have been challenged. The current availability of biograft technology has provided an alternative in augmentation procedures instead of sacrificing autologous tendons. This novel approach may offer a viable option in AAFD, delivering much-needed collagen in a degenerative tendon. These biografts have shown ease of use and tissue biocompatibility in many orthopaedic and plastic surgery procedures and may prove to be an adjunct in the surgical option for AAFD.
