Abstract

Controversy exists as to the treatment of idiopathic toe-walking (ITW). Since 1993, the authors have managed children with ITW using an outpatient percutaneous lengthening of the Achilles tendon, followed by placement of below-knee walking casts for 4 weeks. The authors reviewed 15 children who were treated for ITW with percutaneous Achilles tendon lengthening between 1993 and 1999. Ten of the 15 patients could be contacted for a follow-up survey. None of the parents stated that their child's toe-walking had recurred. There were no painful scars. All of the children were able to keep up with other children and did not notice any calf weakness, Two children had occasional Achilles tendinitis, which was relieved with antiinflammatory medications. All parents were satisfied with their child's outcome. The authors believe that percutaneous tendo-Achilles lengthening in ITW greatly simplifies the management of ITW.
