Forty-three patients with post-traumatic paralysis of the peroneal communicating nerve were followed up and photographed after a mean period of 5 years (range: 2 1/2 to 10 1/2 years). The interest of the study lies in the possibility of comparing clinical and electromyographic findings in 31 cases, enabling establishment of prognostic factors, and of evaluating results of posterior tibial muscle transpositioning after more than 5 years (12 cases).
