Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: Patients with adult acquired flatfoot deformity (AAFD) due to posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD) may require surgery but few reports have evaluated the outcome.

METHODS: We evaluated 21 patients with a median age of 60 (range 37-72) years who underwent different surgical reconstructions due to stage II AAFD before and 6 and 24 months after surgery by the validated Self-Reported Foot and Ankle Score (SEFAS), Short Form 36 (SF-36) and Euroquol 5 Dimensions (EQ-5D).

RESULTS: The improvement from before to 24 months after surgery was in SEFAS mean 12 (95% confidence interval 8-15), SF-36 physical function 21 (10-22), SF-36 bodily pain 28 (17-38), EQ-5D 0.2 (0.1-0.3) and EQ-VAS 11 (2-21).

CONCLUSION: Surgery for AFFD due to PTTD results in reduced pain and improved function and health related quality of life. The outcome scores have been demonstrated as useful. It has also been shown, since there is a further improvement between 6 and 24 months after surgery, that a minimum follow-up of 2 years is needed.

LEVEL OF CLINICAL EVIDENCE: III - prospective observational cohort study.
