Project Description

A pediatric calcaneal osteotomy using an iliac graft is performed on patients with pediatric pes planus (flatfoot), a condition where the longitudinal arch of the foot is lowered or flattened. The purpose of the illustration is to teach pediatric orthopedic surgeons how a calcaneal osteotomy with an iliac graft is performed. It describes the key surgical events and instruments associated with this type of surgery. Bold line illustration allows the surgeon to easily identify key anatomical landmarks while excluding any superfluous information.
