    The operative treatment of the unstable cavovarus foot is a multi-level procedure and comprises of a combination of osteotomies and soft tissue procedures. After correctionof the bony deformity the soft tissues are balanced via soft tissue procedures and lastly ancillary procedures can be performed. There is evidence that in patients with cavovarus malalignment in combination with ankle. Instability due to lateral ligament insufficiency, an isolated lateral ligament reconstruction will fail over time [1-3].
