The only surgical correction of hallux valgus in patients who have associated pronated hindfoot shows high incidence of relapse. Surgical operations suggested in medical literature to correct valgus hindfoot in adult people are calcaneous osteotomy and talus-calcaneous arthrodeses (Grice). Arthrorisis, used in evolutive age, has showed good results. This has suggested us to adopt this technique also in the correction of pronated hindfoot in young adults. A case report of bilateral hallux valgus surgical correction associated with talus-calcaneous arthrorisis is presented. At a middle follow-up of 6 months a good clinical and radiological correction of feet without any signs of mobilization was observed.
