congenital equinus don’t worry! How to treat equinus?
congenital horseshoe varus foot ( congenital talipes equino varus) Is one of the most common birth defects, after the birth of the deformity. According to foreign reports, accounts for the whole population 1 & permil; ~ 3 ‰ 。 Although very common in our country, but the lack of statistics. The disease has a genetic component, due to the formation of the horseshoe varus foot foot imbalance muscle strength, namely varus muscle ( The tibialis anterior muscle and posterior tibial) Strong and shortening, valgus muscle ( Peroneus) Weak and elongate, plantar flexors ( Leg triceps) Stronger than the foot back flexors ( Pretibial muscle) 。 Muscle imbalances for the formation of joint deformity, on the basis of deformed load cause deformities is more serious.
how birth equinus feature
1, after the baby was born with one side or double parapodum department in plantar flexion deformity.
2, tibial internal rotation; The plantar passive correction can’t back out.
3 walking, standing plantar outer load, serious when foot back edge weight, weight bearing area produce slippery bursa phlogistic and callus.
4, unilateral deformity, walking with a limp, bilateral deformity, swaying walk.
5, X-ray radiography: from the longitudinal axis of the first metatarsal bone and cross Angle is greater than 15 & deg; , heel and plantar surface of longitudinal axis Angle is less than 30 & deg; 。
congenital equinus can be cured?
for congenital strephenopodia, early orthodontic technique can be imposed, and functional recovery. The late need to normal hospital seeing a doctor, if necessary, can take surgery.
equinus treatment depends on the cause, degree, age and other factors. Equinus treatment aims to correct deformities, restore function if enough before the development is too small, compared to normal after treatment is still small; With muscle atrophy, after the correct deformities, atrophy of muscle due to normal use, will gradually restore enlargement. Early detection, early treatment, can play its normal functions, can be beneficial to the growth of the foot and the functional recovery of muscles. Serious or older must be bone orthopaedic surgery, the function of the foot and is compared with the normal size will be a certain image.
if found in infants and young children congenital equinus available technique with gypsum or support to correct; Infantile paralysis after equinus can adopt soft tissue release or tendon translocation; Serious must make bone orthopaedic surgery. Treatment of combined with the actual situation of patients considered. In early detection and early treatment required cost is smaller, curative effect is satisfied.
