    This sounds exactly like the two-unit tarsus concept proposed by James Ganley. I first heard this when I was a resident in 1988. The foot "deforming" around the talus was a useful concept for me at the time. I believe that Ganley (of the Ganley splint) published his theory in a minor journal in the 90's.

  4. Cheers Eric, I knew it sounded familiar but couldn't remember where.:drinks
     
  5. I believe that Ganley wasn't even the first to describe this concept. However, I can't, off the top of my head, remember which early paper I read it in. Nothing new under the sun?

    Hi Eric,

    Hope you and your family are keeping well. :drinks

    I can't remember the exact journal number nor the part, but I do know for a fact that it was published in the Australian Podiatrist, probably 1993 - certainly the early 1990s anyway. I used to have a copy of it, but have long since lost it. Indeed, come to think of it, I'm sure Dr. John Weed also wrote a critique of it in the same journal [they might have been published alongside each other], so it could have been slightly earlier than 1993, as Dr. Weed sadly passed away in early October 1992.

    Any library which holds back issues of this journal around that time should be able to uncover it/them.

    All the very best,

    Eric. :drinks
