A clinical and radiological survey of the ankle joints was made in 25 cases of poliomyelitis.
A shortened lateral malleolus of the fibula due to retardation of growth precipitated a valgus instability in the ankle joints.
The amount of valgus deformity in the ankle joint was directly proportional to the severity of paralysis of the invertors and a lack of proper support to the joint with braces.
