Pearls & Pitfalls
The talonavicular joint arthrodesis is utilized for a variety of pathologies of the foot. Instability and subluxation of the rearfoot in adult acquired pes valgus is the most common reason for hindfoot fusion. Congenital deformities, neuromuscular diseases and arthritic conditions, whether they are from an inflammatory arthritis, osteoarthritis or post-traumatic causes, are less common pathologies that would require fusion of the talonavicular joint.
