Concordancia entre el análisis computarizado de la marcha y el examen físico en pacientes con anteversión femoral aumentada sin alteraciones neurológicas.
De la Pava Cortes, Ivan Camilo
Introduction: Human gait is the highest point in a person’s functional independence; therefore, its importance as a movement pattern has led to the development of measuring tools. The aim of the present study is to assess the correspondence between two of those measuring tools: computerized gait analysis (CGA) and the physical examination (PE) only in patients with augmented femoral anteversión (AFA) without neurological alterations. Material and methods: This is an observational analytic study of correspondence and data was obtained retrospectively from 2010 to 2014 in the gait analysis lab from the Children Orthopedics Institute Roosevelt (IOIR) through a single application of the CGA and the PE. Results: It was observed that there are evident alterations in the PE because at hip level the internal-external rotation range decreases in the stance and swing phases. Also, in the knee there is a decrease in the flexion-extension range during the swing phase and in the ankle there is also a decrease in the dorsiflexion-plantarflexion range in the stance and swing phases. Conclusion: This study found that there is no correspondence between the PE and CGA, therefore they are complementary and contribute with information for a differential approach in the decision making at a clinical level.
