Correction of a Severe Poliomyelitic Equinocavovarus Foot Using an Adjustable External Fixation Frame

Abstract: One-stage surgical correction of severe equinocavovarus deformity can result in complications ranging from skin necrosis to tibial nerve palsy. Fewer complications have been reported when severe deformities were treated by gradual correction using external frames such as the Ilizarov external fixator or the Taylor Spatial Frame™. We describe a case of a 64-year-old female patient with severe poliomyelitic equinocavovarus whose deformity required her to ambulate using the dorsum of her right foot as a weightbearing surface.
