Abstract: Vast number of children are born with congenital clubfoot every year. Incidence of CTEV being one per 1000 live births. Most of these are kids born in countries where they remain untreated or poorly treated reducing their quality of life. CTEV has been existent and known since time immemorial to mankind and so are the controversies it carries within itself. Many research has been done on these subjects and they all have contributed understanding the pathoanatomy and deciding upon the appropriate treatment. Still the literature states that treatment of club-foot is in general one of unvarying success. In our study we have recorded the functional outcome of serial cast correction of CTEV by Ponseti method.
