Abstract

Stage 3 adult acquired flatfoot occurs when chronic posterior tibial tendon insufficiency results in fixed hindfoot valgus or fixed forefoot abduction and supination. Nonoperative management results in limited success. Corrective fusion is the treatment of choice. Although a variety of arthrodeses have been employed, triple arthrodesis remains the gold standard.
