Differential diagnosis and treatment of posterior ankle pain in dancers and equinus
foot: multicenter study of the long-term results of tibial neurotomy.
In the system of Catterall/Pirani, (22,23) the components of posterior crease, empty heel, rigid equinus
, curvature of the lateral border, medial crease, and reducibility of the lateral head of the talus are each scored 0, 0.

Epidemiology of pes varus and/or equinus
one year after a first cerebral hemisphere stroke: Apropos of a cohort of 86 patients].
In treatment phase serial manipulations and casting are done to gradually correct the deformity and a percutaneous tenotomy of the Achilles tendon to correct the residual ankle equinus
Repetitive high-impact activity loading on the forefoot can cause trauma to the periosteum and adjacent soft tissue resulting in ongoing inflammation, other factors can include prominent metatarsal heads, tight toe extensors, weak toe flexors, hypermobile first ray, excessive pronation or an equinus
deformity causing restricted dorsiflexion during ambulation and consequent forefoot overloading.
Valgus and equinus
were observed in some students, and some students had varus deformity.
The shorter side could have foot equinus
, hip joint drop, over-extension of knee joint, while the longer side might have over-flexion of hip and knee joint, and over-pronation at subtalar joint (22).
This taxon is now recognized as a complex of at least 5 distinct species that encompass 10 genotypes with different host specificities: E granulosus sensu stricto (genotypes G1G3), E equinus
(G4), E ortleppi (G5), and E canadensis (G6-G10) (3).
