If Talipes Equinovarus (Clubfoot) 43 FIGURE 5-6. These neurogenic equinovarus feet resulted from a lumbosacral meningomyelocele. Note varus deformation (A), equinus position (B), and adductus deformation (C). (Courtesy of Robert M. ) FIGURE 5-7. Cavus foot deformity can result from muscular imbalance due to deficient gastrocnemius function in spina bifida. (Courtesy of Saul Bernstein and Robert M. ) continued improvement does not occur after 3 months of conservative management or if there is little or no flexibility in the foot (especially in the ability to bring the hindfoot equinus into a normal position), then early surgical intervention may be merited.

5-1 and 5-2). Recent studies support FIGURE 5-1. This term newborn died from pulmonary hypoplasia following 6 weeks of oligohydramnios due to premature rupture of membranes. He was in complete breech presentation with breech head deformation sequence and oligohydramnios deformation sequence. When folded into his in-utero position of comfort, his feet demonstrate bilateral positional equinovarus foot deformations. Talipes Equinovarus (Clubfoot) 41 FIGURE 5-2. This flexible equinovarus left foot was associated with a maternal bicornuate uterus.

The normal lateral border of the foot is straight, but in metatarsus adductus, the lateral border of the foot is convex, with a concave inner border, when viewed from the sole with the infant lying prone with the knees flexed. This results in a kidney bean–shaped sole. Forefoot adduction occurs at the tarsal-metatarsal joint, leaving a wider space between the first and second toes and often resulting in a deep crease on the medial midfoot. When a line is projected along the longitudinal axis of the foot from the heel, it should traverse the space between the first and second toes, but in metatarsus adductus, this line is directed toward the lateral toes.
