Residual supination of the midfoot during reconstruction of the stage II adult-acquired flatfoot deformity (AAFD) is often addressed with a medial cuneiform (Cotton) osteotomy after adequate correction of the hindfoot valgus deformity. The purpose of this study was to determine if there was a correlation between postoperative alignment of the medial cuneiform and patient-reported outcomes.

Our study suggests that the surgeon should avoid excessive plantarflexion of the medial cuneiform and use the Cotton osteotomy judiciously as part of a flatfoot reconstruction for stage II AAFD.
