East Lancashire Foot and Ankle Hyperbook

The Hyperbook is an evidence-based resource for education in foot and ankle surgery. It’s mainly aimed at UK orthopaedic trainees, although other professionals and the public have told us they find it helpful.
Our main goals are:
* to provide reference material for orthopaedic and other trainees in foot and ankle surgery
* to explain principles and concepts clearly
* to make it clear why we say what we do
* to promote evidence-based practice (Successor to Blackburn Hyperbook)

Forefoot Deformities

The forefoot can develop several deformities that can cause pain, functional problems, and deformities of other toes. Thick calluses form over points where the deformed area presses into the shoe, and they can ulcerate and become infected in severe cases.

Lower Extremity Abnormalities in Children AAFP

Rotational and angular problems are two types of lower extremity abnormalities common in children. Rotational problems include intoeing and out-toeing. Intoeing is caused by one of three types of deformity: metatarsus adductus, internal tibial torsion, and increased femoral anteversion. Out-toeing is less common than intoeing, and its causes are similar but opposite to those of intoeing. These include femoral retroversion and external tibial torsion. Angular problems include bowlegs and knock-knees. An accurate diagnosis can be made with careful history and physical examination, which includes torsional profile (a four-component composite of measurements of the lower extremities). Charts of normal values and values with two standard deviations for each component of the torsional profile are available. In most cases, the abnormality improves with time. A careful physical examination, explanation of the natural history, and serial measurements are usually reassuring to the parents. Treatment is usually conservative. Special shoes, cast, or braces are rarely beneficial and have no proven efficacy. Surgery is reserved for older children with deformity from three to four standard deviations from the normal.
