A METHOD FOR THE CORRECTION OF CICATRICIAL TALIPES CALCANEUS.

JAMA. 1906;XLVI(13):949-950. doi:10.1001/jama.1906.62510400027001h

The method for the correction of some forms of old talipes calcaneus is illustrated by the two following cases:

Case 1.—History.  —A. B., aged 20, when 4 years of age had the dorsum of the right foot and the lower third of the anterior aspect of the leg severely scalded, producing a sloughing of the skin from the entire burned area. The resulting wound was a long time in healing, which was accomplished by granulation, ending in a dense mass of cicatricial tissues, which in contracting produced an extreme dorsal flexion. After the lapse of several years two different attempts were made to correct the deformity by making a transverse incision, dividing all the soft structures down to the tibio-tarsal joint. The foot was brought down to its normal position. The separation of the wound margins was so great as to produce a large, gaping defect over the dorsum
