Abstract

There is a deficiency in publications on the topic of midfoot cavus. The limited research available does not have a standard definition for the diagnosis of this deformity and lacks a reliable algorithm for its surgical management. The authors performed an extensive review of the literature that found a majority of patients are satisfied with the Cole osteotomy and the dorsiflexory first metatarsal osteotomy for treatment of this condition. High patient satisfaction has been observed with lateralizing calcaneal osteotomies in the setting of midfoot cavus with a secondary rigid rearfoot deformity. Further research on this topic is encouraged.
