Abstract

Subtalar arthroereisis has been used for the treatment of symptomatic flexible flatfoot deformities in both pediatric and adult patients. Chronic sinus tarsi pain is the most common complication of this procedure and can be relieved by removal of the implant. We describe a case of spontaneous fusion of the subtalar joint after arthroereisis. This is an irreversible complication that should be described to the patient as a rare, but possible, outcome of arthroereisis of the subtalar joint.
