Abstract

Background:

Congenital talipes equinovarus (CTEV) is a severe foot birth disorder that may make walking difficult and painful and limit mobility. Seventy-five percent of clubfoot infants are born in low- and middle-income countries.Clubfoot has long been treated. As orthopaedists gravitated toward surgery to treat clubfoot in neonates, non- operative treatment became less popular.

OBJECTIVE: The study sought to examine how the Ponseti technique works, how bad the deformity is (as measured by the Pirani score), and how much it costs to treat congenital talipes equino Varus in babies under the age of two. The Ponseti Clinic treated 490 individuals with 456 CTEV-infected foot cases.

 

MATERIAL AND METHODS: A study involving participants from Pakistan's saidu teaching hospital swat was done. The youngsters were 3.20 months old on average, and they needed 6.80 casts to improve. At the final follow- up, 90.20 percent of patients (score > 24) had positive functional outcomes. The Ponseti method for CTEV treatment may be helpful in terms of both function and aesthetics. This method is a safe, straightforward, and economical technique to treat clubfoot in an impoverished country like Pakistan.
