Gastrocnemius intramuscular aponeurotic recession is performed on the anterior surface of the muscular-bound portion of the gastrocnemius aponeurosis, in the "transection zone" located inferior to the region where the aponeurosis is formed by the separate tendons of the medial and lateral heads of gastrocnemius, and superior to the inferior portions of the muscle's 2 heads. Measurements showed the mean proximal-to-distal length of the transection zone to be 50 mm (range 7 to 100 mm), and the… CONTINUE READING
