Aetiology of idiopathic congenital talipes equinovarus remains unknown

Antenatal diagnosis is common with good differentiation of the idiopathic from the syndromic foot

The Ponseti method is the treatment of choice: results are poorer in the atypical and syndromic feet

Surgery is required in selected cases as the primary treatment and in others, as treatment for residual and/or recurrent deformity.

Chapter.  2720 words.  Illustrated.

Subjects: Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery ; Paediatrics ; Reproduction, Growth and Development
