Flatfeet is a common condition, also known as flatfoot, in which the arches on the inside of the feet flatten when pressure is put on them.

Flat feet can cause pain and affect walking

Flatfoot is a condition in which the longitudinal arch of the foot is lost. It also involves abduction of the forefoot and valgus deformity of the hind foot. In flexible flatfoot, the arch is present during non–weight bearing but is lost during weight bearing. In rigid flatfoot, the arch is absent in weight-bearing and non–weight-bearing positions.

Fibular Hemimelia

Fibular Hemimelia

There is little information on fibular hemimelia because it is so rare. It can be scary for new parents who aren’t sure what is wrong with their child, especially when their doctors haven’t seen a case of Fibular Hemimelia. Fibular Hemimelia, currently called Longitudinal Fibular Deficiency, is characterized by a completely missing or partially missing fibula bone. Each person’s leg has two bones-the tibia and fibula- and people with fibular hemimelia are missing part or all of their fibula. Due to the absence of this bone, it often results in a bowed tibia, with the affected leg being shorter than the non-affected leg.
