A Club Foot or congenital talipes equinovarus (CTEV) is a congenital deformity that 1 in 1,000 children are born with today. TEV is classified into 2 groups: Postural TEV or Structural TEV. Club Foot (or CTEV) is postural. It is usually a painless defect that can be corrected quite simply and the majority of children affected are walking by the normal age. There are no known causes of this disorder but it is linked to genetics as twice as many boys are affected than girls and 25% of children with club foot are related to somebody with the same disorder.
