Özet

The purpose of this case study was to investigate the dynamic features of fibular movement to gait pattern by analyzing the gait of individuals with three different parts of the fibula resected. Gait analyses revealed that proximal fibula resection impaired knee stability, whereas distal fibula resection disturbed ankle kinematics significantly. Except a mild secondary quadriceps weakness, middle fibula resection did not cause a significant biomechanical disturbance on gait.
