Treatment of secondary feet deformities in children with congenital club-foot

., ., .

Abstract


Secondary feet deformities develop as a result of inadequately performed treatment of congenital club-foot, besides, one or more components of deformity have the opposite direction comparing with the initial pathology and therefore require supplementary treatment. Both technical intraoperative errors and tactical details of patient first-year postoperative management play a role in the development of secondary feet deformities after club-foot surgical treatment. The experience of treatment of 66 patients at the age from 3 to 18 years with secondary feet deformities after congenital club-foot treatment by both conservative and operative techniques has been analyzed. Correction of secondary feet deformities requires individualized approach and strict indications for each option of deformity elimination.
