Knee and ankle valgus stress elevated in patients with pediatric flexible flatfoot
from Orthopedics Today
According to research presented at the 16th EFORT Congress, elevated valgus stress was found in the knees and ankles of patients with pediatric flexible flatfoot. Dr. Tamás Terebessy and colleagues compared data from 23 patients with pediatric flexible flatfeet against 14 healthy controls. A 3-D gait analysis was performed using Oxford Foot Model marker protocol and 3-D measurements of hindfoot and forefoot kinematics, and frontal plane kinetics of the ankle, hip and knee were also taken.
