Abstract


Purpose. To study the clinical-and-stabilometric characteristics of orthograde standing in patients with posttraumatic osteoarthrosis of the ankle and talocalcaneal joints.
Materials and Methods. Clinical-and-stabilometric examination performed in 26 patients with posttraumatic osteoarthrosis of the ankle (n=14) and talocalcaneal (n=12) joints.
Results. The differences revealed in the formation of compensatory-and-adaptive mechanisms of providing orthograde position functionality under these pathological conditions.
Conclusions. The results of computer stabilometry may be used when choosing treatment technique for patients with arthrosis deformans of the ankle and talocalcaneal joints, for objective assessment of the results of treatment, as well as to be considered as an additional argument for disability examination.
