Abstract: Identifying decompensation of idiopathic flexible flatfoot can be difficult due to varying levels of expression and the complexity of the condition, making patient selection for surgical treatment a challenge. This case report presents the long-term follow- up of an Evans operation performed due to painful flatfoot in adolescence, and discusses the probable mechanism behind the loss of correction.
