Congenital Vertical Talus.

Jacobsen, Stig T.; Crawford, Alvin H.

Collapse Box


A literature survey revealed 273 patients with congenital vertical talus. This condition does not seem to have any sex prevalence. One-half of the patients had bilateral involvement and one-half had additional defects. Treatment results seem better in those patients without any other abnormalities. Eleven additional cases are presented by the authors. Most patients were treated with the Coleman-Stelling procedure. The patients treated surgically fared better than those treated nonoperatively.
