  • Medial column fusion is becoming increasingly popular for flatfoot reconstruction. The authors describe a new technique for medial column arthrodesis via tension band mesh plating. Plating on the tension side would provide dynamic compression of the arthrodesis sites via weightbearing. This technique may be useful to allow patients to bear weight early in the postoperative course after flatfoot reconstruction.
