Abstract

The use of the Ponseti technique continues to be the method of choice for the treatment of bot foot, however, in those patients with recurrence due to poor adherence to treatment, syndronics, etc. medial postero release emerges as an alternative. Several coverage techniques are described in post-release residual defects from muscle or fasciocutaneous flaps, skin-free grafting, or open defects that close by the second intention. In recent years the relevance of the use of Human Amniotic Membrane (hAM) as a substitute for dermal matrix has been described. There are two cases of closure of bilateral post-medial post-release wound defect in the recurrence of bot foot with said membrane.
