Ilizarov method may be used for treatment of deformities that develop as a result of traumas, burns, neuromuscular diseases, and congenital deformities such as pes equinovarus, pes equinus, pes cavus, and metatarsus adductus, varus, and valgus. Ilizarov method may also be used in the treatment of dynamic deformities such as pes calcaneus. Foot movements and ankle movement planes must be well understood to better evaluate ankle deformities. Ankle movements develop in three different planes.
