Abstract

Cavus foot ranges from flexible subtle to rigid severe deformities, and is related to many pathological conditions of the foot and ankle. Understanding the deformity and the deforming force is essential in treating the cavus foot as well as the associated comorbidities. Since every deformity is different, surgical plans should be customized to each patient.
