    lateral translation; c) combined ankle and subtalar deformities; d) malorientation of subtalar joint.
    Type 4: Fixed equino-varus ankle (clubfoot type).
    The goal is to enable the child to gain maximal function by achieving adequate lower extremity alignment, length and stability. Amputation was the treatment of choice in the past but advances in limb reconstruction techniques have made reconstructions more common and allows to reconstruct more complex deformities.
    A) Limb reconstruction with lengthening.

    Three patients who did not have pin fixation had recurrent dorsal subluxation of the navicular at follow-up.
    Chalayan/Dobbs et al reported on 15 patients with 25 rigid vertical Talus deformities associated with syndromes. The treatment consisted of serial manipulation and casting followed by percutaneous Achilles tenotomy and either pin fixation of the talonavicular joint through a small medial incision to assure joint reduction and pin placement in five feet or capsulotomies of the talonavicular joint and anterior aspect of the subtalar joint in twenty feet. The results at a minimum of 2 years follow-up were excellent with a recurrence in 5 feet.

    -application of above knee plaster. Removal of wires at 6 weeks followed by walking plaster for another 4 to 6 weeks.
    -More recently, a minimally invasive surgical approach has been described using early serial manipulation and casting (“reversed Ponseti”) after birth. Dobbs et al reported excellent short term (minimum of 2 years follow-up) correction of idiopathic congenital vertical talus deformities in 11 patients with 19 affected feet with serial manipulation and casting and percutaneous Achilles tendon tenotomy. Additional surgery involved fractional lengthening of the anterior tibial tendon in two feet, lengthening of the peroneal brevis tendon in one and percutaneous pin fixation of the talonavicular joint in 12 feet.

    and peroneal tendons if contracted,
    -reduction of the navicular onto the talus and pin fixation,
    -reefing of the talonavicular joint capsule,
    -the plantar calcaneonavicular ligament is sutured under tension to the base of the 1st metatarsal,
    -the posterior tibial tendon is tightened and sutured to the inferior surface of the first cuneiform,
    -the tibial anterior tendon may be transferred completely or split and sutured to the undersurface of the head of the talus and navicular,
    -a second wire can be passed transverse through the calcaneum and incorporated into the cast or longitudinally into the calcaneum and talus,
    -reconstruction of the spring ligament.
