The Evans Calcaneal Osteotomy for Correction of Flexible Flatfoot Syndrome

J Foot Surg. Jul-Aug 1984;23(4):291-301.

Abstract

The Evans calcaneal osteotomy is used to correct the flexible flatfoot deformity. The procedure restores functional integrity to the medial longitudinal arch and reestablishes the locking mechanism of the midtarsal joint complex. A preliminary analysis of 36 cases (50 feet) performed at Atlanta Hospital and Medical Center during the past 3 years has yielded favorable results.
