Abstract

The treatment concerning the talipes equinovarus has now a protocol that is well established. That is why, for the pediatric orthopedist, the selection of the therapeutical decision so that when the bone reaches maturity the morphology and functionality of the leg may be considered acceptable is quite a challenge.  We followed the results of the early conservative orthopedic treatment in the congenital talipes equinovarus in 52 patients under the age of 1 year. The percentage of the favorable results after the conservative treatment can reach 83.78 %. In all the case, the treatment should begin as early after birth as possible as the earlier under three months the cure is installed, the more beneficial the outcomes are.
