Cast Removal

Total Contact Casts (TCCs)

Total Contact Casts (TCCs) are used in Wound Care to promote healing by minimizing pressure and friction at the wound site.  The cast is "in total contact" with the foot and lower leg to redistribute weight away from the wound.  It allows for healing even while walking.  These casts are removed in wound care weekly or more frequently as determined by the physician.  In the event of an emergency, the cast can be removed by following the instructions outlined in the Patient Instruction Guide.  Click here to view.
