Figure 2: Treatment strategies for lower limb deformities in the context of spastic disorders. Except for patients requiring intrathecal baclofen pump implantation or removal of a heterotopic ossification, medical treatments are the most prevalent (in grey): Botulinum toxin injections, intra articular injections, neurolysis and percutaneous tenotomies. Surgical treatments are very frequent for ankle and foot deformities and are represented by the size of the red triangle at the bottom of the picture: tendon lengthening, neurotomies, arthrodesis, and frequent tendon transfers
