  1. Below-knee plaster cast for the treatment of metatarsus adductus.

    Article - En anglais

    Sixty-five infants with moderate (37 feet) or severe {48 feet) inflexible metatarsus adductus were treated with a below-knee plaster cast.

    The deformity was corrected in 6-8 weeks in all cases.

    At the 2-to 6-year follow-up (mean. 4 years), the correction was maintained in all children who had had a moderate deformity ; of the 44 feet with severe deformity that were available for examination, six now had a moderate deformity, and one a severe deformity.

    All forefeet were flexible, and further treatment was unnecessary.

    Our results are similar to those for above-knee plaster casts.

    We conclude that a below-knee plaster cast is effective in the treatment of metatarsus adductus.
