Functional status of the locomotor system in patients with improper foot position in the ankle

Щуров В.А., Исмайлов Г.Р.


Functional load on heads of metatarsal bones 20 % decreased and that on calcaneal tuber increased up to 66 % in 18 patients as a result of foot equinus deformity correction with the Ilizarov apparatus. Force in the posterior group of leg muscles, which was 62 % before treatment in patients with leg growth retardation and 35 % in patients with defects of the anterior parts of foot in comparison with the contralateral limb level, reached 46 %. Reserve potentials of the vascular bed of muscles increased as far as myotility ability increased.
