Summary:

Objective: to evaluate the quality of life in children with fat feet using standard quality of life questionnaire technique. Material and Methods. 97 children with fat feet (mean age 9.7±1.2 y. o.) and 32 children with neutral position of the feet (control group) participated in the research. Both the fat foot and neutral position of the foot diagnoses were based on patients» clinical examination and instrumental methods of diagnosis. The questionnaire survey was conducted using the Oxford Ankle Foot Questionnaire (OAFQ) for children (7–17 y. o.) designed for evaluation of potential cost for treatment of children with foot and ankle joint pathologies. It is made up of 15 questions showing the quality of life (physical development, school life and exercise, emotional development) as well as problems with shoes selection. General central module of the Kiddy-KINDL Questionnaire covers various aspects of children»s life providing a fexible modular psychologically applicable method. The structure of the questionnaire scales consists of 24 questions united in evaluation groups. Results. In the group of fatfoot children the quality of life is reliably lower in terms of physical development and shoes selection. Flat feel has almost no impact on children»s emotional development as well as their social function; it doesn»t usually lead to fxation on disfguration. Conclusion. To evaluate every individual clinical case of decline in physical development quality and worsening of the emotional state in pediatric patients trauma orthopedists are recommended to employ various questionnaires that allow for detailed defning of lesions degree and quality for individual selection of the treatment method.

The method of controlled growth for the correction of axial deformities of lower extremities in children

Year: 2018, volume 14 Issue: №3 Pages: 529-532
Heading: Traumatology and Orthopedics Article type: Original article
Authors: Dokhov M.M., Mashukov T.S., Sertakova A.V., Rubashkin S.A., Timaev M.Kh., Kurkin S.A.
Organization:
Summary:

Aim: to estimate the outcomes of the method of controlled growth in the correction of axial deformities of lower extremities in children. Material and Methods. We fulfilled the analysis of surgical results of 37 children aged 3-13 yrs. with leg axial deformities, valgus (20) and varus (17) leg deformities at the level of knee joints. All patients were operated in the growth area with the method of controlled growth — temporary epiphysiodesis of external portions of distal growth areas in femoral bones. The assessment of controlled growth method was conducted at 3-14 months for valgus and 6-15 months for varus leg deformities. Results. The assessment of controlled growth method use indicated clinically and X-ray proved reduction in femoral-tibial angle before the elimination of metal construction in valgus deformity 4.1 times, in varus 3.8 times. Conclusion. The method of controlled growth is highly effective correction method for axial deformities of lower extremities in children, and is minimally traumatizing.

Anatomic and functional disorders in children with flatfoot

Year: 2018, volume 14 Issue: №3 Pages: 396-401
Heading: Traumatology and Orthopedics Article type: Original article
Authors: Sertakova.A.V., Dokhov M.M., Rubashkin S.A., Timaev M.Kh.
Organization:
Summary:

Aim: to analyze anatomic and functional changes in children with flatfoot. Material and Methods. We analyzed foot state in 40 children (34 boys and 6 girls, aged 5-14, mean age: 9.6±2.3 yrs), comparison group consisted of 30 healthy children aged 5-14 (mean age 8.5±2.5 yrs) without foot pathology. Patients were diagnosed on the basis of clinical examination: complaints, functional stress tests, QL questionnaire Oxford Ankle Foot, instrumental methods (X-ray, biomechanical investigation). Results. Right from early age (5 yrs) children start experiencing discomfort in feet in the course of various physical exercises, in our experiment 77% of patients have discomfort complaints. Mean indexes of OAFQ were 30.8±12.5. All children had signs of astragalus erection with respect to calcaneum which stipulates disturbance of longitudinal arch of foot joints and of normal function in talocalcaneal coalition. The disturbance of gait time indexes results in its decreased function. Conclusion. At present the problem of flatfoot in children did not get proper attention. The surgeons should focus on the features of pathology development in children 7-14 yrs applying all modern diagnostic methods.

Pediatric flatfoot: etiopathogenesis and diagnostics

Year: 2018, volume 14 Issue: №3 Pages: 389-395
Heading: Traumatology and Orthopedics Article type: Review
Authors: Zatravkina T.Yu., Rubashkin S.A., Dokhov M.M.
Organization:
Summary:

Longitudinal flatfoot is heterogeneous group of conditions, characterized by a decrease of longitudinal arch height. In mobile flatfoot, this decrease is dynamic, it occurs under vertical load and proceeds asymptomatically. Specialists should pay attention to the "pathological" flatfoot developing with pain syndrome or causing severe gait disturbance. The review analyzes the fundamental and current opinions of local and foreign researchers on the development of flatfoot in children. Literatural data of age dynamics of foot development, epidemiology of flatfoot in childhood, the influence of flatfoot on the foot and gait biomechanics and basic diagnostic methods are presented.

Changes in internal architectonics of proximal femur in children with hip dysplasia development

Year: 2014, volume 10 Issue: №4 Pages: 635-638
Heading: Traumatology and Orthopedics Article type: Original article
Authors: Dokhov M.M., Barabash A.P.
Organization:
Summary:

The aim of the research is to identify common patterns of compensatory changes in internal architectonics of the proximal femur with valgus and varus deformity. Material and Methods. The parameters of the proximal femur were determined on the basis of 78 roentgenograms of children with hip dysplasia (1-4 years, 4-7 years, 7-16 years) before and after surgical treatment (after 6 months). Results. The degree of change in internal architectonics of the bone substance has been determined after changing of the femoral neck-shaft angle achieved with the help of correcting osteotomy in different age groups. Conclusion. Maximum recovery of internal architectonics of the bone substance is observed in the groups aged 4-7 years.
