CTEV is one of the common congenital deformities of foot. In recent years, interest has been renewed in the ponseti casting technique and many centres now believe that most clubfeet can be treated by ponseti casting rather than surgery. Ponseti technique is also the easiest, cheapest and most reliable mode of available treatment.
Ten years ago, Dr.Erica Lamprecht worked with Prof. Ponseti in IOWA, USA. She was one of the first paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon who changed from surgical treatment to Ponseti’s treatment in Switzerland. Dr.Erica Lamprecht is pleased to conduct a workshop on Ponseti Casting method for CTEV. I feel that the younger surgeons should get trained in this technique. Hence this workshop.
