Sliding extension of tendon junction

Sliding extension of the tendon junction for surgical treatment of varus deformity.

Treatment of diseases: congenital clubfoot


Sliding extension at the tendon junction is suitable for foot varus with horseshoe malformation.

Surgical procedure

After exposing the tendon to the tendon, the tendon sheath is cut. At the junction of the tendon, only the sacral part of the posterior tibial muscle is cut off, the continuity of the muscle is retained, the dorsiflexion to the neutral position, the correction of the hindfoot and the midfoot, and the cut tendon will slide itself within the tendon sheath. Prolong, suture the tendon sheath, routinely close the subcutaneous tissue and skin, maintain the median neutral position or slight overcorrection, and fix with short leg cast.
