The accessory navicular is an ossicle, or extra bone. Some people are born with this ossicle. The posterior tibialis muscle tendon attaches to the navicular bone. This muscle inverts (turns in) and plantarflexes (points toward the toes) the Accessory Navicular ankle. This muscle also helps stabilize the medial arch of the foot. The tendon will insert on the accessory navicular, which may cause pain and muscular dysfunction, including loss of the medial arch (flat foot). The accessory navicular is present at birth, but it is then a soft cartilage.

This requires significant postoperative immobilization because the tendon has been manipulated. This procedure may restore the arch of the foot because of the improvement in the position of the posterior tibialis tendon. Some surgeons will remove the ossicle, but there are concerns that this may disrupt the stability of the foot and result in poor function of the posterior tibialis muscle, causing it to tire easily. However, there is a recently developed technique that allows surgeons to remove the ossicle and strengthen the attachment of the posterior tibialis tendon without complete detachment and reattachment.
