There have been no reports in the literature evaluating the functional outcome of the foot and ankle after a VFBG using validated functional outcome measures. In addition, most of the patients in published studies have had contralateral or ipsilateral lower limb pathology. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the functional outcome of the foot and ankle after a VFBG using… CONTINUE READING
