Clubfoot is a new born congenital deformity. Nowadays, the “gold-standard” treatment is Ponseti Method. Achilles tenotomy (AT) is necessary procedure in more than 90% cases and it can be performed with local anaesthesia (LA). The AT with LA has been rejected in some Hospitals because of the potential “agressivity”, but recent papers reported possible future neurological damages in babies due to early general anaesthesia or sedation. The real significance in terms of suffering, time and family affectation of AT with LA has never been reported. This study was designed to analyse significant parameters to measure the cry as a measurement of percutaneous AT with LA in infants with congenital clubfeet. Material and methods: A total of 30 patients (43 feet) have been enrolled. Audio during AT is recorded with App iPhone 6 placed at 1meter distance. Time of procedure, duration and intensity of crying during AT (App deciBel10) were analysed. Family’s involvement was evaluated through a satisfaction questionnaire. Neurological cases were excluded. Statistical study performed by Statcrunch (v2012-2016) Confidence Interval 95% (p<0.05).
