Abstract

Foot deformity is a well-recognised impairment in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) which results in functional disability. Deformity can occur at the rearfoot, midfoot, forefoot or in combination and the impact that site-specific foot deformities has on functional disability is largely unknown. The aim of this study was to describe the clinical and biomechanical characteristics of patients with severe rearfoot, forefoot or combined deformities and determine localised disease impact.
