FEATURES OF THE X-RAY ANATOMICAL CONDITIONS OF THE FOOT AND ANKLE IN CHILDREN WITH FIBULAR APLASIA

Cover Page

Abstract


The article contains the results of the analysis of radiographs of the foot and ankle in 84 children with malformations of the fibula. We found that infants’ relation to the ankle joint is often normal, as in the sagittal and frontal planes. With increasing age the number of posterior subluxation increases as well as anteriorly, laterally. Also dislocations of the foot were presented. The most significant relationships were violations of the subtalar joint. There were pronation, supinatsion, positions of calcaneus bone and its lateroposition, which was the most frequent cause of valgus deformity. Also we found a violation of the form of the talus such as a flattening of the block, smoothing of the neck. In rare cases of the varus deformity of the foot abnormalities of the tarsal bones were observed.
