Joint Preserving Surgery for Correction of Spasmodic Flat- Foot in Skeletally Mature Foot

Summary

the investigators want to obtain a functional and radiological outcome of peroneus brevis, tertius and extensor digitorum longus muscles lengthening together with calcaneal osteotomies in the treatment of the spasmodic flat- foot.

Description

One of the most common foot complaints is the "flatfoot" deformity. Clinical evaluation of flatfeet primarily focuses on differentiation between the two main types: flexible and rigid. The rigid flatfoot deformity is an uncommon diagnosis (occurring one-third as often as the flexible type) but often is symptomatic and requires treatment". Multiple causes of rigid flatfeet have been identified such as rheumatoid arthritis, tarsal coalitions (being the most common cause) that are excluded from that research. Triple arthrodesis is used for treatment of rigid flat foot but the patient satisfaction is not good as there is some stiffness in the foot .but here the investigators want to know what is the effect of extensor digitorum longus, peroneus brevis and tertius lengthening together with osteotomies in alignment of spasmodic flat- foot. In patient with rigid flat- foot or spasmodic flat- foot will often have the hind-foot alignment to the outside. Alignment of the heel influences how weight-bearing stress is applied to the foot, ankle, knee and hip. So, these patients may benefit from the calcaneal osteotomies and extensor digitorum longus, peroneus brevis and tertius lengthening to improve that alignment.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Footwear made of a flat sole shaped to the contour of the foot, connected to an upper portion which may or may not completely cover or wrap around the foot.

Devices used to support or align the foot structure, or to prevent or correct foot deformities.

Distortion or disfigurement of the foot, or a part of the foot, acquired through disease or injury after birth.

Deformity in which the foot is misaligned with respect to the TALUS in the ANKLE JOINT. While mostly congenital, as in CLUBFOOT, acquired deformities are included. Acquired talipedes are often associated with other foot deformities such as SYNDACTYLY and POLYDACTYLY.

Common foot problems in persons with DIABETES MELLITUS, caused by any combination of factors such as DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES; PERIPHERAL VASCULAR DISEASES; and INFECTION. With the loss of sensation and poor circulation, injuries and infections often lead to severe foot ulceration, GANGRENE and AMPUTATION.
