Flexor Hallucis Longus Transfer {Modified Wapner's (10, 11)}: A longitudinal incision was made on the medial border of the foot just above the abductor hallucis muscle, extending from the head of the first metatarsal to the navicular.
Motor evoked potentials were elicited by transcranial stimulation (corkscrew electrodes on C1-C2, train of five stimuli, duration: 0.05 ms, interstimulus interval: 4 ms, intensity: 380 V) and were bilaterally recorded by needle electrodes (12 mm) on the abductor pollicis brevis, tibialis anterior and abductor hallucis muscles. Somatosensory evoked potentials were elicited by bilateral stimulation of the posterior tibial and median nerves (paired surface disk electrodes on each nerve, single stimulus, duration: 0.2 ms, interstimulus interval: 5.1 Hz, intensity: 20-40 mA) and were recorded by corkscrew electrodes on Cz-Fz for the lower limbs and C3'-C4' for the upper limbs.
