Clubfoot in Children - What it is

​What is Congenital Talipes Equino Varus (CTEV) / Club Foot?

Congenital Talipes Equino Varus (CTEV) for short is commonly known as clubfoot. This is a condition where a child presents with either one or both feet pointing downwards and turns inwards.  There are two types of CTEV: postural and structural.

  • Postural CTEV involves muscle imbalance and / or tightness. There is usually no bone or joint involvement.
  • Structural CTEV involves the bone and joints of the foot, where the child's foot cannot be passively put through a full range of motion.
