Anatomy Revisited - Medial Longitudinal Foot Arch

March 01, 2017

Contributors: Joris Robberecht; Hannelore Boey; Francis Van Glabbeek, PhD; Geoffroy S Vandeputte, MD

Adult acquired flat foot deformity is a frequent clinical entity leading to invalidating symptoms in middle aged patients. In this video we revisit the anatomy of the static stabilizing structures of the medial longitudinal foot arch. These structures include the plantar fascia, the talocalcaneal interosseous ligament, and the spring ligament complex consisting of the tibionavicular portion of the superficial deltoid ligament, the superomedial bundle of the calcaneonavicular ligament, and the inferior bundle of the calcaneonavicular ligament. With the help of a gait simulator we illustrate the effect of sectioning these ligaments. Based on the anatomical characteristics we suggest a reconstruction technique to repair the spring ligament complex.
