The January 2012 issue of the Journal of Pediatric Orthopedics B is a special edition on clubfoot. This edition of the journal contains articles on genetics, anatomy, assessment and treatment of clubfoot including treatment using the Ponseti technique in babies and toddlers and a literature review by the writer of this blog on treatment techniques in developing countries.
The full table of contents and the articles can be accessed on the JPOB website, here: http://journals.lww.com/jpo-b/pages/currenttoc.aspx. There is a free article by Dr C. Norris titled ‘Clubfoot in the 20th Century: where we are and where we may be going in the 21st century’ which can be downloaded. This article gives an excellent history of clubfoot management and some interesting ideas on what direction clubfoot treatment may be taking in the future.
