Equinocavovarus Foot Deformity

This 38-year-old male suffered multiple lower leg fractures in a motor vehicle accident. These fractures caused the soft tissues to contract, which resulted in an equinocavovarus foot deformity. Due to the severity of the deformity, an external fixation device (Taylor Spatial Frame) was used to gradually correct the varus, cavus, adduction, and equinus simultaneously over a 5-month period. After treatment, a plantigrade (flatfoot) position was achieved. This treatment preserved all the foot and ankle joints while successfully correcting the soft tissue contracture. The patient was able to walk normally.
