Summary

The provider applies a long leg ambulatory cast, immobilizing the leg and knee, to treat fractures and deformities. A long leg cast extends from the thigh down over the foot but leaves the toes free. She forms the bottom of the cast to accommodate a cast shoe that straps on over the cast and permits ambulation when able to bear weight on that leg. Alternatively, she applies a footplate and rubber heel to the bottom of the cast.
