Malalignment of a triple arthrodesis can pose significant challenges to the foot and ankle surgeon. Lack of a plantigrade foot will not be well tolerated by the patient and will often require revision of the original surgery. This article presents a review of the treatment algorithm used to address this unique problem. A case study based on this approach is also presented.
