In children with hemiplegia, it is important to distinguish between equinus with hindfoot varus (equinovarus) or valgus (equinovalgus). Premature onset of medial gastrocnemius (GM) EMG in individuals with equinus is well documented. Premature onset of Peroneus longus (PL) EMG has been described in neurologically impaired adults with equinovalgus, but not in children. Our aim was to record the onset of PL and GM activity on the hemiplegic side of children with equinovalgus deformity. Fifteen… Expand
Dynamic EMG of peroneus longus in hemiplegic children with equinovarus.
TLDR
Premature PL and GM EMG activity preceding initial contact corresponds not to a disorder secondary to imbalance but rather, more probably, to motor command dysfunction. Expand
Muscle Shortening and Spastic Cocontraction in Gastrocnemius Medialis and Peroneus Longus in Very Young Hemiparetic Children
TLDR
In very young hemiparetic children, the paretic GSC may rapidly shorten in the first years of life, and GM and PL cocontraction during swing phase are excessive, which contributes to dynamic equinovalgus. Expand
Spastic co-contraction of gastrocnemius medialis and peroneus longus during swing phase of gait in hemiplegic children
TLDR
Quantification of cocontraction could provide a better understanding of the adverse muscle actions and contribute to better target the therapeutic actions, especially botulinum toxin injection in PL, to improve gait in very young hemiparetic children before orthopaedic deformation. Expand
Planovalgus foot deformity in cerebral palsy corrected by botulinum toxin injection in the peroneus longus: Clinical and radiological evaluations in young children.
TLDR
PL may be an early target for abobotulinumtoxinA treatment in pes planovalgus associated with premature PL activity in children with CP, and the metatarsal stacking angle did not differ from reference values. Expand
Added Value of Dynamic EMG in the Assessment of the Equinus and the Equinovarus Foot Deviation in Stroke Patients and Barriers Limiting Its Usage
TLDR
Three pairs of patients suffering from chronic hemiparesis consequent to a stroke, with EFD or EVFD were studied, finding patterns of muscle activity differed considerably, and dEMG data acquired during walking provided information that was not available from the sole clinical assessment. Expand
Planovalgus foot deformity in hemiplegic children: A clinical and radiological evaluation after botulinum toxin injection in peroneus longus
TLDR
Injections into PL seemed to have a therapeutic actions on fore and midfoot that improved clinically the hindfoot valgus but without action on the dorsalflexed of calcaneus depending on the gastrocsoleus complex. Expand
Three-Dimensional Gait Analysis in Children Undergoing Gastrocsoleus Lengthening for Equinus Secondary to Cerebral Palsy
TLDR
The quality of evidence for gastrocsoleus lengthening surgery based on objective measures was examined and more detailed breakdowns of outcomes by cerebral palsy subtype, sagittal gait pattern, and equinus type in order to allow more rigorous treatment recommendations to be made were considered. Expand
Multiple gait patterns within the same Winters class in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy.
TLDR
It cannot be defined a predominant muscle activation pattern specific for a Winters group, and for a correct clinical assessment of a hemiplegic child, it is advisable to record and properly analyze gait signals during a longer period of time, rather than selecting a few "clean" gait cycles, since these cycles may not be representative of the patient's gait.

Spatiotemporal and Joint Kinematic Analyses in Hemiparetic Cerebral Palsy Children During Stance Phase
The aim of this study is to identify and quantify spatiotemporal and joint kinematics in hemiparetic cerebral palsy children by three dimensional gait analysis (3DGA). Gait strategy of 36 HemipareticExpand
A new therapeutic target in equinus: Botulinum toxin injection (Dysport®) in peroneus longus
TLDR
Examining the entire kinetic chain rather than focusing on the action of a particular segment is necessary to identify the compensatory strategies of control system and provides evidence that neuromuscular control and muscle activation pattern are different between individuals with pfps and healthy subjects.

TLDR
Evaluation of the patterns of lower extremity muscle activity preoperatively by dynamic EMG showed overactivity of the peroneus longus, and a new gait pattern which has not been previously reported was observed was observed. Expand

TLDR
The authors retrospectively reviewed a series of 492 consecutive cerebral palsy patients undergoing computerized motion analysis and found the likelihood of having stiff knee in swing, out-toeing, calcaneus deformity, and crouch increased with prior surgery. Expand

The Use of Dynamic EMG in Predicting the Outcome of Split Posterior Tibial Tendon Transfers in Spastic Hemiplegia
TLDR
Undercorrection can be avoided by assessing the activity of the anterior tibial muscle before surgery, and this results are expected to assist in surgical decision making for the equinovarus foot in cerebral palsy. Expand
Peroneus Longus Muscle Activation Pattern during Gait Cycle in Athletes Affected by Functional Ankle Instability
TLDR
A statistically significant decrease in peroneus longus muscle activity was found in the injured side compared with the uninjured side, which may result in reduced protection against lateral sprains. Expand
Does walking speed influence the time pattern of muscle activation in normal children?
TLDR
The aim of this work was to study the effect of walking speed on the EMG‐time pattern of the extrinsic ankle muscles in healthy children between 4 and 11 years of age and found this pattern was found to change significantly with speed of progression but is independent of growth over this age range.

Evaluating the dynamic support provided to the human longitudinal arch by the leg muscles active in the stance phase of gait and by the plantar aponeurosis provides further insight into the dynamic supporting and deforming forces of the longitudinal arch. Expand

TLDR
The positional change of the medial column of the foot in closed kinetic chain with variable Achilles tendon tension was investigated in seven fresh frozen cadaver specimens using a 3-dimensional radio wave tracking system and remarkable trends of arch flattening motion were detected in the distal segments of the lateral column with varied Achilles load.
