Tendon Transfers



- Discussion:
    - tendon transfers are never indicated in the initial treatment of club foot, but they may be of benefit in special circumstances;
    - even though the major deformities have been corrected satisfactorily, flexible fore part of the foot may tend to supinate during the swing phase of gait;
    - lateral half of tendon of anterior tibial muscle can be transferred to second or third cuneiform
