PMID:  2825884     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The use of dynamic adhesive strapping to correct congenital clubfoot in the immediate neonatal period is an effective method of treatment. The technique is described in detail, the steps are illustrated, and precautions and limitations are given. This type of treatment should shorten the amount of time required to correct congenital clubfoot. If the holding phase is sufficiently prolonged, a reduction in the number and complexity of operative procedures needed for recurrent and recalcitrant cases can be expected.
