A true clubfoot results from a flexural deformity of the distal interphalangeal joint that is characterised by a shortening of the deep digital flexor tendon musculotendinous unit. Flexural deformities are a problem not only in foals but are also responsible for the clubfoot conformation seen in...

They can be uni- and bilateral and generally are produced as flexural deformities of the distal interphalangeal and metacarpophalangeal joints. The related causes are...

Abstract

A variety of methods are described for managing distal limb flexural deformities in the foal, including intravenous oxytetracycline and splint or cast use. This case series describes a novel technique that creates an 'active tension-extension splint' by wiring the toe into a custom-made fibreglass...
