Endoscopic coalition resection.
Excision of symptomatic tarsal coalitions, after failure of attempted conservative treatment, is a widely accepted surgical procedure, when the surrounding joints are not degenerated. Historically, the literature has supported open resection. Recently, arthroscopic/endoscopic resection has been described for both calcaneonavicular (CNC) and talocalcaneal (TCC) coalitions. This article describes indications, preoperative planning, surgical techniques, and results of arthroscopic/endoscopic CNC and TCC resection.
