Foot & Ankle Focus: AOFAS Consensus Group Approach to Progressive Collapsing Foot Deformity

Saturday, January 30, 2021
9:00 - 10:30 am CT

Moderator: Scott J. Ellis, MD, and Mark E. Easley, MD
Faculty: Cesar de Cesar Netto, MD, PhD; Jonathan T. Deland, MD; Lew C. Schon, MD; Mark S. Myerson, MD; David B. Thordarson, MD; Bruce J. Sangeorzan, MD; Beat Hintermann, MD; Jeffrey E. Johnson, MD


A group of experts met in person on November 2, 2019, at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in New York City, to review and discuss classic and recent literature on Adult Acquired Flatfoot Deformity. The participants have worked on a series of consensus statements to guide and support the diagnosis and treatment of patients with the pathology and proposed a new nomenclature ("Progressive Collapsing Foot Deformity," or PCFD) and classification system for the problem. A series of Consensus Statement Articles were published in Foot & Ankle International.

In this webinar, participants from the PCFD Expert Consensus Meeting will summarize and highlight the Expert Consensus Statements and discuss cases of Progressive Collapsing Foot Deformity.


At the conclusion of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Discuss the rationale for the newly proposed nomenclature ("Progressive Collapsing Foot Deformity," or PCFD)

  • Review the recently proposed classification system for the pathology

  • Highlight and summarize the expert consensus statements in regards to diagnosis and treatment of Progressive Collapsing Foot Deformity
