Clinical Analysis of Gait and Assessment of Surgical Treatment Outcomes in Children with Neurogenic Feet Deformity


Clinical analysis of gate in children with neurogenic feet deformities before and 1 year after musculotendinous transposition was performed. Study was performed using programmable hardware complex combined with dynamometric platform and electromyelograph. Temporal, kinematic and kinetic parameters of a stride cycle were determined. Degree of walking asymmetry was evaluated using asymmetry parameter. Besides the pattern of joint mobility disturbance and degree of muscular function loss or decrease were taken into account. Complex clinical analysis of walking enabled to detect and worked out in details the disturbances of injured extremity function before surgery as well as to establish the improvement of weight bearing ability of the injured extremity, decrease in compensatory overload of the collateral healthy extremity and lowering of asymmetry parameter after surgery.
