Özet

Pes cavus is a deformity of the foot characterized by an abnormally increased arch and hyperextension of the toes that gives the foot the appearance of a claw. We encountered a case of a 54-year-old male patient who presented with total right foot amputation due to injury with the tea harvesting engine. During physical examination, we observed a right foot amputation in the level of the metatarsophalangeal area and a bilateral idiopathic pes cavus deformity. In this unusual case, we aimed to report the difficulties experienced in bone stabilization and tendon repair, which are the first steps in limb replantation, and the tendon lengthening technique used to correct the pes cavus deformity, which is a novel technique for this deformity, along with a review of the related literature. The surgical outcomes of the case were successful.
