Abstract
Reconstruction of a flatfoot commonly involves a calcaneal Medial Displacement Osteotomy (MDO) to correct hindfoot valgus in combination with soft tissue procedures. We compared fixation of an MDO using either a single, large cannulated screw versus a locking step-plate in load to failure in a cadaveric model.
