Detailed Description:

The investigators reviewed fourteen patients with checkrein deformity who underwent surgery in our hospital between 1993 and 2010. Five patients received FHL and flexor digitorum longus (FDL) tenolysis at the musculotendinous junction; among them, two also underwent Z-plasty lengthening of the FHL tendon. Nine patients underwent percutaneous segmental toe flexor tenotomy. The Hallux Metatarsophalangeal- Interphalangeal Scale (Hallux MTP-IP scale) and Foot and Ankle Outcome Score (FAOS), English version LK1.0 self-explanatory questionnaire were used to evaluate the functional outcomes.
