Background: Congenital talipes equinovarus (CTEV) is a prevalent congenital foot deformity. The Ponseti Method is a non-surgical treatment for clubfoot, which entails a sequence of casts and braces. The accelerated Ponseti method is a modified version of the standard Ponseti method, involving more frequent cast changes.
Materials and Methods: A total of 60 patients with idiopathic CTEV under the age of one were carefully chosen and assigned to either group A (Standard) or group B (Accelerated). The Pirani score was used to evaluate each clubfoot before applying a cast. In group A, above-knee casting was performed once a week, while in group B, it was done twice a week
Results: The study involved sixty children, accounting for a total of seventy feet. The results indicated a shorter treatment duration with the accelerated Ponseti method, while the occurrence of skin complications was comparable between the two methods.
Conclusion: In conclusion, both the accelerated and standard Ponseti methods are equally effective in correcting clubfoot. The accelerated method offers the advantage of reducing the overall treatment duration and has clear benefits, while there is no notable difference in skin complications between the two methods.
