Chopart amputation is a transtarsal amputation that preserves the talus and distances without modified shoe wear or prosthetic fitting anatomy □ in a chopart amputa- tion, the talus and calcaneus should be cut and contoured to fit a prosthesis □ myodesis is helpful to pad the end of the stump. Discussion: - francis chopart first described disarticulation thru midtarsal joint - chopart amputation removes the forefoot and midfoot, saving talus and calcaneus has a pronounced tendency to go into equinus and must usually be fitted with a prosthesis that extends upto the patellar tendon level. Prosthetics (lower) transometatarsal (lis franc) trans tarsal (chopart) ankle disarticulation (symes) trans tibial (below knee) trans femoral (above knee) hip disarticulation hemi pelvectomy. Foot amputations: • with chopart amputation through the midtarsal joint, a stable and painless stump allowing distal weight bearing must be obtained the prosthesis extends to the knee arthrodesis of the hindfoot is mandatory, with or without talectomy  • the functional impact of forefoot amputation is considered mild to. Chopart amputation: • at the talonavicular and calcaneocuboid joints, it involves disarticulation through the midtarsal joint leaving only the calcaneus and talus fit a prosthesis 6 o ideally, amputations should be at least 4 inches (10cm) above the lower end of the femur to allow room for the prosthetic knee o normally.
