2Casting

The child is transferred from the spica box and the abdominal towel and the back support are removed from the cast.

The edges of the cast are trimmed, as necessary, to allow flexion of the opposite hip and adequate access to the perineal area.

Optionally, waterproof adhesive tape is added to the perineal edge of the cast.
