Abstract

Biplanar wedge osteotomy of the ankle is a powerful tool in the armamentarium of the surgeon faced with multi-planar deformities. Described below is a case of a 21-year old man who suffered a severe acquired deformity of the foot and ankle of unusual etiology, this failed to correct using accepted treatment methods and was finally handled with a successful outcome using biplanar wedge osteotomy. It demonstrates the potential of biplanar wedge osteotomy of the ankle to simultaneously correct a complex deformity involving the ankle in more than one plane.
