Abstract

The Ponseti technique has become standard for the treatment of congenital idiopathic clubfoot. Treatment includes serial manipulations and casting, accompanied by percutaneous tenotomy of the Achilles tendon. In this article, the authors describe a modification in the Achilles tenotomy technique by using a large-gauge hypodermic needle in the outpatient setting.
