Abstract

Syme's amputations can provide a reliable alternative to more proximal amputations, but they are not without their occasional complication. Varus heel pad migration has been well documented as a complication following Syme's amputations. We describe a technique of resection of soft tissue and bone combined with anchoring of the lateral band of the plantar fascia in order to treat patients with the complication of varus heel pad migration.Level of Clinical Evidence: 4
