Abstract INTRODUCTION: The vertical talus is a rare congenital deformity of the foot. It is an isolated idiopathic deformity in about half of all cases. In the others, it is associated with abnormalities such as arthrogryposis, myelodysplasia, DDH. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The surgical correction may be carried out at 10 to 12 months of age by literature, but our cohort of patients involved older children too. We use one stage procedure sec Crawford with some additional procedures such as opening dorsal osteotomy, subtalar Grice procedure and muscle transfers. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: Our procedures show excellent and good results (89.5\% resp. 88.8\%) in the treatment of this congenital deformity of the foot. We recommend this one stage procedure in the treatment of older patients too.
