Minimally invasive surgery and percutaneous surgery of the hindfoot and midfoot
- 44 Downloads
Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) and percutaneous (PC) surgery recently spread as a new technique in operative forefoot correction, and by extension in hindfoot and midfoot. Numerous procedures were described, and a race for MIS and PC has started. However, performing surgery with small incisions should not be an end in itself. Biomechanical and anatomical concerns must be taken into account and shall not be sacrificed for cosmetic reasons. For the most common hindfoot and midfoot pathologies, we discuss what we consider the surgical necessities and then describe the MIS and/or PC procedure we choose, according to these fundamentals.
