Congenital Talipes equinovarus (CTEV) or Clubfoot is a common deformity in infants. In this birth defect, the foot of the baby faces inwards. CTEV can range from mild to severe thus requiring immediate treatment. Some cases of clubfoot are treated by gentle exercises and splinting while the severe cases require surgical corrections so that the child can walk normally.
Causes of CTEV/Clubfoot
Most of the cases are idiopathic, that is without any distinct reason. The CTEV is idiopathic in the children who are otherwise normal, that is, no other neurological deficit is there in them. However, the family history, environmental factors and bad position of child’s foot in the womb make the child prone to this deformity. In early 1900s as well, the constriction of foot inside the womb was known to be the primary reason behind the clubfoot deformity. This reason has not been declined till now and the position of the child’s foot in uterus do play a role in the development of clubfoot deformity.
Other cases who have some neurological deficits like Spina Bifida, cerebral palsy or arthrogryposis are likely to have CTEV as well. Though in those cases also, it is fully curable.
1. Non- surgical Treatment
The most popular non-surgical or minimally invasive procedures in treating the Clubfoot is
Ponseti Method – In this treatment method, the baby’s foot is manipulated and a cast is applied. This cast is changed every week after manipulating the foot til significant improvement takes place.
After this period, some babies require the Achilles tenotomy. As mentioned in the surgical treatments of clubfoot below.
Manipulation, Taping, and Braces – Some minor CTEV cases need just the manipulative treatment and the taping is done along with braces to ensure the correction of the deformity. The exercises are taught to the mother of the baby to be performed daily. Physiotherapy is done and advised.
2. Surgical Treatment Method
Achilles Tenotomy – Achilles tenotomy includes performing a cut in the tendon above the heel(at the back of the ankle). So that the lengthening of the tendon can take place while it heals. The cast is applied in order to achieve proper healing in the corrected position. This is a very minor procedure that doesn’t even need stitches thus helping in scarless and faster healing.
Posteromedial tissue release – The severe and neglected cases of CTEV require soft tissue release in which the followed by a cast. This leads to considerable correction of the deformity. In this surgery, the soft tissues around the ankle like plantar fascia (the sole of the foot), muscles and ligaments around it are released till the neutral position is attained.
Other less common surgeries performed for clubfoot treatment are Osteotomy(shaping the bones to attain the proper alignment of the foot), anterior tibial tendon transfer (Releasing the tendon and changing its position to increase the flexibility and movement of the foot), Triple arthrodesis (three bones are fused to achieve the correction) and tallectomy (removal of one small bone, talus) etc

Answer. The casts are changed every week and this lasts for about 6 to 8 weeks.
Question 5. Can the correction be done only in infants or newborns?
Answer. No, Correction can be done at any age but the deformity keeps increasing as the age increases. So it is advisable to get the clubfoot treated as soon as possible.
Question 6. What if I don’t use braces for my baby?
Answer. The deformity will not be corrected fully and the CTEV can reoccur. So it is advised to use the brace religiously for the advised time period.
