- Clubfoot Treatment: Ponseti and French Functional Methods are Equally Effective. Shawne Faulks; B. Richards // Clinical Orthopaedics & Related Research;May2009, Vol. 467 Issue 5, p1278
AbstractÂ Â Over the past 15Â years, the reemergence of nonoperative treatment of clubfeet throughout the world has been profound. Two methods have been utilizedâ€”the Ponseti method and, to a lesser extent, the French functional method. Our review presents one institutionâ€™s...
- The Ponseti method for the treatment of congenital club foot: review of the current literature and treatment recommendations. Radler, Christof // International Orthopaedics;Sep2013, Vol. 37 Issue 9, p1747
The Ponseti method has become the gold standard of care for the treatment of congenital club foot. Despite numerous articles in MEDLINE reporting results from around the globe there are still crucial details of the Ponseti method which seem to be less commonly known or considered. The Ponseti...

An abstract of the article "Forefoot deformation during the stance phase of normal gait," by Saartje Duerinck, Friso Hagman, Ilse Jonkers, Peter Vaes, and Peter Van Roy is presented.
- Clubfoot in Malawi: local theories of causation. Bedford, K. Juliet A.; Chidothi, Paul; Sakala, Harris; Cashman, John; Lavy, Chris // Tropical Doctor;Apr2011, Vol. 41 Issue 2, p65
This paper examines local theories of the causation of club foot expressed by the guardians of children undergoing treatment at clinics run by the Malawi National Clubfoot Programme (MNCP). Core data was collected and analysed using qualitative methodologies of critical medical anthropology....
- The posterior talofibular ligament: an anatomical study with clinical implication in clubfoot surgery. Courvoisier, Aurélien; Vialle, Raphaäl; Thévenin-Lemoine, Camille; Mary, Pierre; Damsin, Jean-Paul // Surgical & Radiologic Anatomy;Nov2008, Vol. 30 Issue 8, p633
The role of the posterior talofibular ligament (PTFL) in the clubfoot deformity remains unclear. We conducted an anatomical study to precise its topography and role in maintaining tibiotalar equinus in patients with clubfoot deformity. Ten ankles were dissected using a wide posterior exposure....
- A Comparison of Two Nonoperative Methods of Idiopathic Clubfoot Correction: The Ponseti Method and the French Functional (Physiotherapy) Method. Richards, B. Stephens; Faulks, Shawne; Rathjen, Karl E.; Karol, Lori A.; Johnston, Charles E.; Jones, Sarah A. // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;Nov2008, Vol. 90-A Issue 11, p2313
Background: In the treatment of idiopathic clubfeet, the Ponseti method and the French functional method have been successful in reducing the need for surgery. The purpose of this prospective study was to compare the results of these two methods at one institution. Methods: Patients under three...
- Neglected Idiopathic Bilateral Clubfoot Successfully Treated with the Ponseti Method. de Podestá Haje, Davi // Case Connector;2013, Vol. 3 Issue 1, p1
The article presents a case study of a patient referred to a public hospital with previously untreated bilateral clubfoot. Foot manipulation and casting were conducted as described by Ponseti. It reveals that the modification of Ponseti technique in neglected cases is possible, performing the...
- Identification of muscles forces during gait of children with foot disabilities. Michnik, R.; Jurkojc, J.; Pauk, J. // Mechanika;2009, Vol. 80 Issue 6, p48
The paper presents methodology of experimental and modeling investigation for analysis of loads transmitted by lower limb joints. The 3D mathematical model makes it possible to determine forces generated by lower limbs.
