Efficacy of Botox in Patients With Idiopathic Clubfoot
Treatment of Idiopathic Clubfoot Utilizing Botulinum Toxin A: A New Treatment for Correction
The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of adding Botox injection to serial manipulations and castings in patients with clubfoot. The study hypothesis was that the use of Botox in the setting of serial manipulations and castings is an effective treatment for clubfoot.
All patients meeting the inclusion criteria will undergo manipulation and casting until hindfoot stall is encountered. Hindfoot stall is defined as forefoot abduction to 60 degrees but persistence of hindfoot equinus. At hindfoot stall, subjects received Botox injections at 10 IU/kg into the gastrosoleus muscle complex. Following injections, subjects were recasted.
