Abstract: Pes cavus can be defined as an abnormal elevation of the longitudinal arches, which is often secondary to a muscle imbalance. This deformity affects the foot's three dimensions (3D) and our osteotomies are usually planned on a lateral (two-dimension) X-ray. Are we really considering all the spatial components of the deformity? The aim of this study is to present a technique tip to identify the apical plane of the pes cavus deformity and perform a midfoot dorsal-based wedge resection osteotomy by using customized 3D printed surgical guides. Three patients underwent the presented technique, all for the indication of symptomatic neuromuscular pes cavus with both anterior and posterior deformity. 3D-printed patient-specific guides help the surgeon to minimize human error, improving intraoperative accuracy, while reducing surgical time and intraoperative X-ray exposure. Closing wedge midfoot osteotomy to correct anterior pes cavus may be an interesting indication to use customized 3D printed surgical guides.
