The transfer of the posterior tibial tendon to the center of the dorsum of the foot is a method used to achieve dorsiflexion in flaccid paralysis of the anterolateral leg muscles or muscular imbalance of clubfoot.


To describe functional results back to the surgical procedure for transposition of posterior tibial the center of the foot.

The study design was observational, descriptive, transversal, ambispective with a description of the world of work patients with impaired dorsiflexora foot muscles and impaired gait in the period January 2008 to December 2014.


A total of 18 patients who were candidates for what this type of treatment was obtained.


We believe that this study can be estimated as generating hypotheses about whether it is a superior alternative to arthrodesis. For this plan to continue studies in this field, with an increased number of assessments both before and after surgery to have more objective results and a greater number of individuals.
