    Has anyone read this article? If so, what method did they use to assess the "deformed angle of the foot" that they managed to improve by approximately 3 degrees? And how does it translate to western methods of charting HAV? Is it the IM or HAV angle? Either way, there's a large degree of measurement error with many of the methods used to determine longitudinal bisections of foot bones on plain film x-ray, so I'm unsure of how significant their findings really are.
    Have a nice day.

    Getting hold of it is one thing, being able to read Korean is another ... all we have for now is the english abstract.

    I myself have always found it difficult to tape patients with HAV.A volcano pad or tube foam sleeve tends to be easier to do.True,this may not be a very efficient thing to do,but even the taping does not really solve the problem,at least as I see it.
