Description

Subtalar arthroereisis is a treatment of adult or pediatric flatfoot which involves the insertion of an implant into the sinus tarsi, that acts as an internal orthotic or spacer. Placement of the implant restores the arch of the foot while preventing excessive pronation.

Criteria

Subtalar arthroereisis for the treatment of adult or pediatric flatfoot conditions is considered experimental/investigational, as published data are inadequate to prove the safety and efficacy of this procedure.
