STENTING TO CURE FLAT FOOT
The stent is called HyproCure and it
can be surgically inserted to cure flat
The procedure is called arthroreresis.
It involves opening up the foot canal
and placing the stent between the foot
and ankle bones. The titanium stent
acts like a bolt, holding the gap open
like a door wedge, so the bones stay in
the correct position.
There are huge benefits over other
surgical procedures, as it can be done
under local anaesthetic, the recovery
time is short and it is reversible (the
stent can be removed and the foot
returned to its previous position).
