Etiology The frequency of a very wide variety of associated anoma- lies underlines the fact that vertical talus is a very hetero- geneous condition in etiological respects. Vertical talus Historical background in isolation appears to be the result of a problem during In contrast with clubfoot, which was known as a clinical diagnosis back pregnancy. Up until the 7th week of pregnancy the foot in ancient times, the presence of congenital flatfoot was only discov- is in pronounced dorsal extension and gradually plan- ered after the invention of the x-ray. The damage must occur during this phase, possibly as a result of the concurrent shortening of both the triceps surae Occurrence muscle and the foot extensors. A hereditary component While we are not aware of any epidemiological studies, has been observed both for flatfoot in isolation and in as- flatfoot can be described as a fairly rare deformity. A useful method The pathoanatomical changes have been investigated in for differentiating between a vertical talus and a flexible several children with multiple deformities who died at flatfoot or oblique talus is to record lateral x-rays of the an early age.
