    • Talo 1st met is >15
  16. When do you begin conservative treatment on clubfoot?
  17. You manipulate for 10-15 minutes and now what position or corrections are you going to apply in the casting?
    • Abduct FF
    • Evert Heel (Hatch says no)

  21. What is the squential release of clubfoot?
    • Retract tarsal tunnel
    • PT tendonw lengthening
    • TN Joint Capsulotomy
    • Sping ligament
    • FDL tendon lengthening distal to knot of henry

    • Recurrence
    • Severe rigid deformity
    • Performed only in the child and adult never in INFANTS
  23. What is the cincinnati incision?
    • incision starts medially at the medial cuneiform bone, runs around the hindfoot at the same level, and ends at the cuboid bone laterally and a verticle incision to help link it.
    • This is to release the peroneals and any tightness there that may be causing the calcaneus to internally or place fibula posteriorly. This is also to help reposition any osseous deformity noted.
  24. What osseous procedures?
    • Medial column lengthening of the medial cuneiform opening wedge

    • DuVries: DF wedge at the MTJ
    • Dwyer: Lateral closing wedge or opening medial wedge
