Pes cavus (high arch) is when the sole of the foot is distinctly hollow when bearing weight. Pes cavus is often a sequela of lower extremity nerve disorders from neurologic disease or stroke. Often patients will have foot drop and an equinus deformity. Treatment consists of tendon transfers and bony structural changes to form a stable plantigrade foot for weightbearing.
Arthrex has developed a comprehensive line of products from the EndoBlade™ system to treat equinus deformity, tendon transfers with Tenodesis screws and InternalBrace™ ligament augmentation, multiple diameters of Headless Compression FT and PT Screws, BioSync® wedges for Cotton/Evans osteotomies, and an extensive line of plates and screws in the Comprehensive Foot System.
