Figure 5: Anteroposterior view of fibular hemimelia valgus deformity before correction. The incision will follow a reverse Z-plasty incision (according to Dr. Mark Pinsky) for SUPERankle exposure so that shortening of the anterior skin of the ankle will occur after correction. The middle leg of the Z is across the ankle crease. All legs are the same length with an angle of 60°. The foot is in fixed equinovalgus (left). After correction, the foot is pinned plantigrade and the bone is shortened as in Figure 2. The two triangular skin flaps automatically move into the shortened Z position (middle left). Medial view of fibular hemimelia equinus deformity before correction. Part of the incision can be seen on the medial side (middle right). After correction, the foot is pinned plantigrade and the bone is shortened as in Figure 2. The triangular flap is now reversed from the one seen before the correction (right)
