    Author(s): Mohamed Abd El Aziz Mohamed AliMohamed Abd El Aziz Mohamed Ali

    Background: We studied results of a soft tissue reconstructive procedure (Yahia procedure) for correction of symptomatic severe Flexible Flat Foot (FFF). The idea of the procedure was open reduction of the midtarsal joints with dynamic elevation of the talus by split transfer of the tibialis anterior tendon to reconstruct the medial longitudinal arch with rerouting of the other half of the tendon to act as a supportive planter ligament. The aim of this work is to assess Dynamic Soft Tissue Reconstructive (DSTR) procedure for correction of severe flexible flat foot. Patients and Methods: We operated 17 patients (30 feet), (13 bilateral-4 unilateral), 12 males and 5 females, at a mean age of 6 (4-8) years corrected by Dynamic Soft Tissue Reconstructive (DSTR) technique with a mean of 30 months (12-48) of follow up period.
