Arthroscopic subtalar fusion may be performed to treat subtalar pain due to arthritis, instability , and deformity – when this is passively correctible.
In common with other arthroscopic fusions, it preserves the tissue envelope, with perceived advantages of rapid and reliable union.
It is particularly useful in cases with poor lateral skin due to valgus deformity, burns or previous scars.
