Introduction Abductor hallucies tenotomy sometimes necessary in treatment of clubfoot. Material and methods Thirty children (45 feet) of one day old up to six months presented with idiopathic clubfoot. Patients were treated using the technique of Ponseti combined by abductor hallucies tenotomy after serial casting.

Conclusion Abductor hallucies tenotomy shortens the duration of casts, decrease the cost and risk of leg atrophy.
