The brace keeps the foot at the proper angle to maintain the correction. Achilles tenotomy. After the manipulation and casting period, approximately 90 percent of babies will require a minor procedure to release continued tightness in the Achilles tendon (heel cord). During this quick procedure (called a tenotomy), your doctor will use a very thin instrument to cut the tendon. The cut is very small and does not require stitches. This information should not be considered complete, up to date, and is not intended to be used in place of a visit, consultation, or advice of a legal, medical, or any other professional. If the brace is not worn as prescribed, there is a high likelihood that the clubfoot will recur. Bracing. Even after successful correction with casting, clubfeet have a natural tendency to recur. Most children will follow this bracing regimen for 3 to 4 years. This bracing program can be demanding for parents and families, but is essential to prevent relapses. This usually takes about 3 weeks. For most infants, this improvement takes about 6 to 8 weeks.
Ponsetti method. The most widely used technique in North America and throughout the world is the Ponseti method, which uses gentle stretching and casting to gradually correct the deformity. Babies might be fussy during the first few days of wearing a brace and will need time to adjust. By the time the cast is removed, the Achilles tendon has regrown to a proper, longer length, and the clubfoot has been fully corrected. Your doctor will gradually decrease the time in the brace to just overnight and nap time (about 12 to 14 hours per day). Your doctor will talk with you about the type of brace that would best meet your baby's needs. To ensure that the foot will permanently stay in the correct position, your baby will need to wear a brace (commonly called "boots and bar") for a few years. The bones that make up the forefoot are those that are last to leave the ground during walking. Considerations of the Ponseti method. Treatment should ideally begin shortly after birth, but older babies have also been treated successfully with the Ponseti method. The initial treatment of clubfoot is nonsurgical, regardless of how severe the deformity is.
There are several different types of braces – all of which consist of shoes, sandals, or custom-made footwear attached to the ends of a bar. The bar can be solid (both legs move together) or dynamic (each leg moves independently). A new cast will be applied to the leg to protect the tendon as it heals. Handling and casting. Your baby's foot is gently stretched and manipulated into a corrected position and held in place with a long-leg cast (toes to thigh). For the first 3 months, your baby will wear the brace essentially full-time (23 hours a day). It does, however, require the family to be highly committed to applying the braces properly every day. Each week this process of stretching, re-positioning, and casting is repeated until the foot is largely improved.
