Spica Cast

A spica cast (also hip spica cast or body cast) is an orthopedic cast that aids in the healing of a fracture or after hip dysplasia surgery in babies and infants. The cast is made of fiberglass with a soft-lining inside and immobilizes the hip and pelvis. Depending on the injury, the cast could cover parts of the chest, one or both legs, and even the knees. Special care is needed when changing diapers, cleaning, and transporting children who have a spica cast.
