The Malerba calcaneal Z-osteotomy is an operative procedure to treat the hindfoot varus component of adult cavovarus deformity. Basic science studies support the corrective ability of this osteotomy. However, there have been no published midterm clinical and radiographic results. The purpose of this article is to describe the radiographic and clinical improvement in a series of patients treated with this osteotomy.
