This article reviews historical approaches to the various osteotomies in the treatment of rigid cavus feet in children, with an emphasis on the biplanar nature of historical osteotomies. The Akron dome midfoot osteotomy is performed at the apex of the rigid cavus deformity and allows for maximum correction in any plane, and for varus, valgus, dorsal, plantar, and rotational correction. In that regard, the Akron dome midfoot osteotomy provides the greatest amount of multiplanar correction.
