Club foot

Talipes Equinovarus is a deformity of the foot which may be congenital or positional. The cause of congenital is not known. It is considered to be multifactorial. Conservative methods of treatment include taping and use of malleable splints. Serial plaster casts are the major nonoperative treatment. Complete correction both clinically and radiologically should be achieved by three months of age. If surgery is needed it is done between 6-12 months of age.
