: This study aimed to clarify how children with congenital limb deficiencies visually attend to their bodies, particularly their limbs and prostheses.: Participants included children with and without congenital limb deficiencies. They were shown photographs of themselves and their visual attention was measured using an eye tracker. Read More

The absolute number of total knee arthroplasties (TKA) continues to rise every year. About 10% of the patients are less than 55 years of age, although it is known that functional results and patient satisfaction are lower combined with an increased likelihood of revision compared to older patients. Higher physical activity and patient expectations are a major challenge in this age group. Read More

Unilateral Transtibial Amputees (UTA) usually present deficiencies in the mechanisms underlying their gait likely because of the absence of the resected segment, thus having an impact on the ability to actively adjust the lower limb prosthesis. Five participants with UTA were evaluated considering the ground reaction forces during gait by using an integrated BTS GAITLAB system. The first and the second vertical peak forces tended to be greater in the Healthy Lower Limb (HLL) than in the Lower Limb prosthesis (LLP). Read More

This cross-sectional study aimed to examine the development of lower limb voluntary strength in 160 ambulatory patients with bilateral spastic cerebral palsy (CP) (106 diplegics/54 quadriplegics) and 86 typically developing (TD) controls, aged 7-16 years. Handheld dynamometry was used to measure isometric strength of seven muscle groups (hip adductors and abductors, hip extensors and flexors, knee extensors and flexors, and ankle dorsiflexors); absolute force (AF) values in pounds were collected, which were then normalized to body weight (NF). AF values increased with increasing age ( < 0. Read More

Case: A total knee arthroplasty (TKA) was performed on a 35-year-old man with congenital fibular deficiency and a 20° varus and 28° antecurvatum tibial deformity of the left lower limb.Conclusion: One-stage TKA and correction of the extraarticular deformity by means of intraarticular bone resections and a standard soft tissue release were performed to restore the limb's mechanical axis. Patients with congenital fibular deficiency present a wide range of limb deformities because of bone deficiencies or treatment sequels, which might require a specific surgical technique and small-sized implants to obtain good results during a TKA.
