Foot deformities are the commonest in paralytic poliomyelitis. Das (1958) while reviewing the relative incidence of various deformities in 200 cases, found different types of foot deformities in as many as 145 cases. Among the foot deformities calcaneal deformity is quite common. The characteristic deformity of the heel with secondary cavus deformity of the foot, frequent presence of valgus or occasionally varus deformity of forefoot and typical thumping gait with less of springiness of normal gait are well known to every orthopaedic surgeon. Though power transfer operation was used first for this condition as early as 1881 (Nicoladoni) yet, management of this deformity either conservatively or by operation is still problematic. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the results of some of the different operative procedures that have been performed for this condition.
