  • Surgical treatment of tarsal coalitions in children and adolescents. [Journal Article]
    EFORT Open Rev. 2020 Feb; 5(2):80-89.Kothari A, Masquijo J
  • A tarsal coalition is an abnormal connection between two or more tarsal bones caused by failure of mesenchymal segmentation.The two most common tarsal coalitions are calcaneonavicular coalition (CNC) and talocalcaneal coalition (TCC). Both CNC and TCC can be associated with significant foot and ankle pain and impaired quality of life; there may also be concomitant foot and ankle deformity.Initial…
  • Diagnosing tarsal coalition in medieval Exeter. [Journal Article]
    Int J Paleopathol. 2020 Jan 03; 28:32-41.Albee ME
  • CONCLUSIONS: These frequencies are quite high for clinical imaging estimations, but consistent with other reported archaeological frequencies.This study contributes to known frequencies of tarsal coalition in the past. It also provides descriptive diagnostic criteria for identifying tarsal coalition in archaeological populations.Poor preservation of some of the individuals in this sample means that the true frequencies of tarsal coalition may be underrepresented.
  • Tarsal coalition. [Journal Article]
    Curr Opin Pediatr. 2020 Feb; 32(1):93-99.Soni JF, Valenza W, Matsunaga C
  • CONCLUSIONS: Talocalcaneal and calcaneonavicular coalitions can cause painful pes planovalgus. Their diagnoses are confirmed by plain radiograph, computed tomography, and, in cases of fibrous or cartilaginous coalitions, MRI. Initial treatment is conservative, and when symptoms persist, resection of the coalition is recommended along with tissue graft interposition with or without associated valgus correction. Arthrodesis is indicated as a salvage procedure whenever treatment fails or with advanced arthrosis.
  • StatPearls: Talocalcaneal Coalition [BOOK]
    . StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Guduri Venugopal V Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Dreyer Mark A. MA Naval Health Clinic New England BOOK
  • The talocalcaneal coalition is a frequent cause of painful flatfoot in older children or adolescents. The talocalcaneal coalition is an anomalous connection between the talus and the calcaneus. The talocalcaneal coalition can be fibrous (syndesmosis), cartilaginous (synchondrosis), or bony (synostosis). Although the anomaly is present at birth, it becomes symptomatic only when the abnormal fibrou…

  • Few studies have evaluated the long-term functional and radiological outcomes of tarsal coalition resections. This study aimed to report and compare the functional and radiological outcomes after talocalcaneal (TC) and calcaneonavicular (CN) coalition resections. Thirty-three patients between 12 and 35 years old with symptomatic tarsal coalitions participated, each undergoing tarsal coalition res…
  • Unsuspected tarsal coalitions in equinus and varus foot deformities. [Journal Article]
    J Pediatr Orthop B. 2019 Sep 09 [Online ahead of print]Van Rysselberghe NL, Souder CD, Mubarak SJ
  • Tarsal coalitions have been reported in the setting of equinovarus foot deformities, but only as rare isolated findings. Failure to recognize this diagnosis may inhibit successful equinovarus correction. Here, we review a series of tarsal coalitions seen in congenital and neuropathic equinovarus deformity at two institutions, to report the breakdown of types of coalitions encountered, and to sugg…
  • StatPearls: Ankle Fractures [BOOK]
    . StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Wire Jessica J Kendall regional medical center Slane Valori H. VH Kendall Regional Medical Center BOOK
  • The ankle joint is a highly complex joint. The ankle joint has multidirectional mobility for its complex role in supporting the weight of the body and fulfilling a myriad of daily functions. It is a combination of bones and ligaments structured around the talus. It includes the tibia, fibula, calcaneus, the tibiofibular ligament, the lateral ligament complex, and the medial ligament complex. The …
  • Anatomico-radiological Study of the Bifurcate Ligament of the Foot with Clinical Significance. [Journal Article]
    Cureus. 2019 Jan 08; 11(1):e3847.Kafka RM, Aveytua IL, … D'Antoni AV
  • Introduction Lateral ankle sprain caused by forcible plantar flexion and inversion of the foot commonly damages the anterior talofibular ligament and other ligaments. Unfortunately, involvement of the bifurcate ligament (BL) is often overlooked when assessing such injuries in clinical practice and identification of this ligament on magnetic resonance (MR) scans can be challenging. Anatomically, t…
  • Bilateral Triple Talocalcaneal, Calcaneonavicular, and Talonavicular Tarsal Coalition: A Case Report. [Case Reports]
    J Foot Ankle Surg. 2019 Mar; 58(2):374-376.Farid A, Faber FWM
  • We report a rare case of a female, aged 42 years, with symptomatic bilateral triple tarsal coalition, that is, talocalcaneal, calcaneonavicular, and talonavicular tarsal coalition. The patient was treated conservatively by adjusting her activities. At the 12-month follow-up, the patient was asymptomatic. Bilateral triple tarsal coalition is a rare disorder, especially in nonsyndromic patients. Th…
  • Talocalcaneal Coalition Including Open Comminuted Calcaneal Fracture; A Case Report and Literature Review. [Case Reports]
    Bull Emerg Trauma. 2019 Jan; 7(1):80-83.Berzins U, Hohenberger GM, … Seibert FJ
  • Tarsal coalition is an often unrecognised cause of foot and ankle pain and represents a congenital osseous, cartilaginous or fibrous connection between two or more tarsal bones. Fractures in combination with tarsal coalitions are rarely described in the literature. We report the case of a 43-year-old male patient with a talocalcaneal coalition who sustained an open comminuted calcaneal fracture a…
  • Treatment of isolated talonavicular coalition: Case report and literature review. [Case Reports]
    J Int Med Res. 2018 Dec; 46(12):5322-5330.Duan X, Yang L
  • Tarsal coalition refers to an abnormal fibrous, cartilaginous, or bony connection that develops between two or more tarsal bones. Talocalcaneal coalition and calcaneonavicular coalition account for more than 90% of all cases of tarsal coalition. Coalition exists early at birth, but bony connection usually develops during the patient's late growth period. Isolated cases of talonavicular coalition …
  • Spring Ligament Instability. [Review]
    Foot Ankle Clin. 2018 Dec; 23(4):659-678.Bastias GF, Dalmau-Pastor M, … Pellegrini MJ
  • The crucial role of the spring ligament complex within the pathologic process that leads to flatfoot deformity has evolved recently. There has been improvement in the anatomic knowledge of the spring ligament and understanding of its complex relationship to the deltoid complex and outstanding advances in biomechanics concepts related to the spring ligament. Optimization of flatfoot treatment stra…

  • Coalitions of the Tarsal Bones. [Review]
    Foot Ankle Clin. 2018 Sep; 23(3):435-449.Klammer G, Espinosa N, Iselin LD
  • Tarsal coalitions are the result of impaired mesenchymal separation of the tarsal bones. The most common types include calcaneonavicular or talocalcaneal coalitions. Subtalar stiffness results in pathologic kinematics with increased risk of ankle sprains, planovalgus foot deformity, and progressive joint degeneration. Resection of the coalition yields good results. Tissue interposition may reduce…
  • Arthroscopic approach to the spring (calcaneonavicular) ligament. [Journal Article]
    Foot Ankle Surg. 2018 Jun; 24(3):242-245.Lui TH, Mak CYD
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrated that arthroscopic approach and repair of the spring ligament can injure the medial plantar nerve.The clinical relevance of this cadaver study is that it confirmed the feasibility of arthroscopic approach to the whole span of the spring ligament and alerted the potential risk of injury to the medial plantar nerve during arthroscopic assisted repair of the ligament.

  • What to Do with the Spring Ligament. [Review]
    Foot Ankle Clin. 2017 Sep; 22(3):515-527.Steginsky B, Vora A
  • The spring ligament complex is an important static restraint of the medial longitudinal arch of the foot and its failure has been associated with progressive flatfoot deformity. Reconstruction of the spring ligament complex is most appropriate in stage II posterior tibial tendon dysfunction, before severe peritalar subluxation and rigid deformity develops. Although an understanding of the spring …
  • A rare case of cubonavicular coalition. [Case Reports]
    Radiol Case Rep. 2017 Mar; 12(1):133-135.Chu JS, Underriner T, Yegorov A
  • Tarsal coalition is a condition described by partial union between tarsal bones. Its clinical significance is the potential cause for chronic pain in the ankle and foot. Diagnosis of this condition may be delayed until adolescence or early adulthood, and is often made incidentally on examination for other purposes. Treatments for this condition can range from conservative options to surgical appr…
