Congress Lecture

Pathoanatomy Based Treatment of the Clubfoot in Children - the Ponseti Method

Abstract: The patoanatomy of the clubfoot can be understood as a maximum supination of the hind foot with disrupted fore-hind foot alignment. Under this assumption the Ponseti method corrects the fore-hind foot-alignment and reduces the hind foot with manipulation of the calcaneo-pedis-block. Serial casting and consequent splinting maintains the results of the manipulations.
