Amit Mhambre, Badrinath Athani

Abstract :

 Cereal Palsy (CP) is a common disability affecting children. It has been estimated that around 30% of CP, have hemiplegia. In hemiplegia the common foot deformity is equinovarus. The aim is to study the effectiveness of soft tissue procedure in equinovarus foot deformity by compå pre and post operatively passive range of motion (ROM) at ankle with knee flexion and extension and radiologically by assessing Tibiocalcaneal angle in lateral view and Talocalcaneal angle in AP view. In our study we have included 25 patients having equinovarus foot deformity in which 18 patients underwent tendoachilles lengthening and 7 patients underwent tendoachilles lengthening with split tibialis posterior transfer. The results were statistically compared and showed ROM and angles improved post operatively.
