Abstract [en]

Foot drop (FD) can be caused by a variety of diseases and injuries. FD leads to walking difficulties and reduced balance which also can lead to a higher risk of falling. Patient with a stroke often have an equinovarus deformity of the foot together with the DF. There is a need to optimize and standardize the treatment for patients with FD across different medical specialities. Surgical interventions, with goals of producing a balanced functional foot, have been shown to improve the function and quality of life and decrease the use of braces and walking aids in patients with FD after a CVI. In Sweden data regarding FD surgery is collected in the National Quality Registry for Foot and Ankle Surgery (Riksfot), but there is also an ongoing multicentre study, investigating the patient-reported and functional results of surgery due to FD caused by a CVI.
