Objective: to estimate the condition of lower extremities neuromuscular apparatus in children with talipes valgus using electroneuromyographic data. Material and Methods. M- and F-responses from foot and lower leg muscles, fibu-lar and tibial nerves in 65 patients aged 7 to 17 у. o. were studies. Results. Decline in M-responses form tibial nerves was detected in 61.8% of cases alongside low activity of spinal cord motor neurons. Significant increase in amplitudes of fibular nerve M- and/or F-responses was detected; this was registered from gastrocnemius muscles in 63.1% of children and was independent of either their age or foot deformity degree. Conclusion. Electroneuromyographic data of the study in children with talipes valgus deformity allowed revealing evidences of segmental and suprasegmental CNS structures as well as lower extremity peripheral nerves involvement into the process.
