BACKGROUND An active ankle dorsiflexion is essential for a proper gait pattern. If there is a failure of the foot lifting, considerable impairments occur. The therapeutic effect of an implantable peroneus nerve stimulator (iPNS) for the ankle dorsiflexion is already approved by recent studies. However, possible affection for knee and hip motion after implantation of an iPNS is not well described. OBJECTIVE The objective of this retrospective study was to examine with a patient cohort whether… CONTINUE READING
