Peritaral destabilization syndrome

Pisani G.

The subtalar and talo-navicular joints go to form a single talo-calcaneo-navicular (coxa pedis) joint complex that acts as modulator for foot trim reciprocity with the talar bone in the closing of the kinetic chain of the lower extremity; subtalar function cannot be separated from this and it is for this reason that I believe the concept should be reviewed form the terminological and pathogenetic viewpoints and looked at almost as a clinical entity, a pronator syndrome with reference to the subtalar joint itself. It is more precise to speak of peritalar destabilization syndrome with reference to a biomechanical moment that conditions the destabilization of the subtalar, possibly reflected in pathogenetic moments inherent in the coxa pedis such as a degenerative glenopathy, in addition obviously to the extrinsic causes that may intervene as peritalar destabilizing moments (skeletal, ligamentous, neuromuscular changes, suprasegmental destabilizations, etc.).
