Preoperative gait asymmetry in end-stage unilateral ankle osteoarthrosis patients

Publication date: Available online 21 December 2017 Source: Foot and Ankle Surgery Author(s): Swati Chopra, Xavier Crevoisier Background Gait asymmetries following unilateral ankle surgeries have been reported in published literature. Preoperative compensatory gait patterns are usually assumed to be the cause; however, this hypothesis is not backed by objective data. This study aims to assess gait symmetry in patients with unilateral ankle osteoarthrosis (AOA).
