Pes planus commonly referred to as “flat feet,” is a relatively common foot deformity and is defined by the loss of the medial longitudinal arch of the foot where it contacts or nearly contacts the ground. The arch of the foot is a tough, elastic connection of ligaments, tendons, and fascia between the forefoot and the hindfoot. The talocalcaneal interosseous ligament, tibionavicular portion of the deltoid ligament, spring ligament, and medial talocalcaneal ligament assist in stabilizing the… Expand
The role of the angle of the fibularis longus tendon in foot arch support
TLDR
This cadaveric study sought to quantify this support across both the transverse arch and medial longitudinal arch and to establish whether a correlation exists between this support and the angle at which the tendon enters the sole. Expand
The correlation between body mass index and the type of foot arches with the risk of hallux valgus in children aged 13–14 years old
TLDR
There was a significant relationship between body mass index and foot arches andFoot arches with the risk of hallux valgus, however, bodymass index is not directly related to halluxvalgus condition. Expand

TLDR
The adult acquired flatfoot is a deformity that results from the loss of dynamic and static supportive structures of the medial longitudinal arch that requires an understanding of the biomechanical effects of deforming forces, tendon dysfunction, ligament disruption, and joint sublaxation. Expand

TLDR
Conservative and surgical treatment of rigid pediatric pes planovalgus is outlined, which consists of congenital vertical talus, tarsal coalitions, and peroneal spastic flatfoot without coalition. Expand
Pediatric Flexible Flatfoot; Clinical Aspects and Algorithmic Approach
TLDR
A clinical algorithmic approach to pediatric flatfoot is presented, suggesting that comorbidities such as obesity and ligamenous laxity should be identified and managed, and surgery can be considered when all nonsurgical treatment options faile. Expand
Pes planovalgus deformity surgical correction in ambulatory children with cerebral palsy
TLDR
Surgery is effective in the treatment of planovalgus deformity in ambulatory children with cerebral palsy and feet with milder deformity show good results, with calcaneal lengthening. Expand

TLDR
Gl Globally, there is need for a standard by which the pediatric flat foot is assessed classified and managed, and assessment should utilize the available evidence-based management model, the p-FFP Future research needs to evaluate the pediatricflat foot from representative samples, of healthy and known disease-group children prospectively, and using validated assessment instruments.

TLDR
Posterior tibial tendon stabilizes the medial arch of the foot and has a crucial role during gait, and is a clinical signifier of tendon dysfunction in patients with anterior tibia dysfunction. Expand
