Plantar pressure displacement after anesthetic motor block and tibial nerve neurotomy in spastic equinovarus foot

Nathalie Khalil, MD, et al.

Easy-to-use quantitative tools quantifying the effects of surgical treatment in spastic equinovarus foot are infrequent. The F-Scan in-shoe system can be used to quantify center of pressure (COP) displacements measurements in the equinovarus foot. In this study, the F-Scan system shows objective changes in COP displacements after tibial nerve neurotomy. Changes of COP’s length trajectory on the paretic side could be a predictive marker for the effect of surgical treatment. To our knowledge, this is the first study to use the F-scan in-sole system to evaluate the effects of motor nerve block and neurotomy.
