Futura™ CSI Conical Subtalar Implant for Flexible Flatfoot

The implant your doctor is considering is the Conical Subtalar Implant (CSI) from Tornier (pictured above). It is a conical-shaped implant that is placed in the sinus tarsi to block forward, downward and inward motion of the talus bone of your foot. Just as an orthotic limits this motion from the outside of the foot, the CSI limits the same motion from the inside. The implant is manufactured from medical-grade titanium and is held in place by soft tissue in the sinus tarsi, a small canal found in the subtalar joint.

The Surgery

The procedure is brief and typically performed in an outpatient setting. There is no use of cement and no removal of bone, and itcan be reversed if necessary. If your doctor determines the need for additional corrective procedures they will be discussed prior to surgery.

Benefits

There are many benefits of using the CSI implant. These may include a decrease in both pain and tiring of the legs and feet. You may also be able to return to normal activities for longer periods of time.
