RODRIGUEZ RODRIGUEZ, Eugenio Isidro; ARREDONDO REYES, Reydy  y  LOPEZ MARRERO, Noelio. New therapeutic approach of the congenital metatarsus varus and residual varus equine foot. Five-year study. Gac Méd Espirit [online]. 2014, vol.16, n.2, pp.75-87. ISSN 1608-8921.

Background : the metatarsus varus is a frequent illness in the deformities of the foot of the neonate. Objective : to value the new therapeutic approach in the congenital metatarsus varus and residual varus equine foot in a five-year study . Methodology : a descriptive longitudinal study in 81 children with the metatarsus varus diagnosis was carried out, these children were cared in the Orthopedics and Traumatologic service of the Pediatric University Hospital "Eduardo Agramonte Piña", from January, 2002 to December, 2007. Starting from the direct consultation with 30 experts, the results were processed statistically with the test of Alpha of Cronbach. Results: the congenital metatarsus varus, bilateral feet and the age five to nine years prevailed. The final result was good in all of the patients when correcting the clinical static parameter and in most them the dynamic one. Conclusions : the new therapeutic approach unites the clinical and radiological criteria for a better diagnosis of the metatarsus varus. The technique is effective and simple as it is less invasive on soft parts, complications are minimal as it is carried out in a brief surgical time and less expendable material is used for which it brings about economic benefits to the country. The obtained results are conclusive because the series is suitable and the performed follow up was long term.
