Hindfoot varus

Last revised by Jeremy Jones on 18 Sep 2021

Hindfoot varus describes a relatively varus position of the calcaneus which is adducted and rotated under the talus. This is best appreciated on a weightbearing DP foot radiograph as a relative reduction in the angle formed between the mid-talar and mid-calcaneal axes (the talocalcaneal angle).

Hindfoot varus may occur in isolation, but is usually present in patients with congenital talipes equinovarus clubfoot).
