We report a European study of idiopathic clubfoot that was compiled with the aid of a detailed questionnaire. The retrospective study was presented at the seventh meeting of the European Paediatric Orthopaedic Society (EPOS). Most EPOS members treat idiopathic clubfoot at birth with plaster cast, but a few use physiotherapy and splints. The results of this conservative treatment vary. Operation is usually indicated at an age ranging from 4 to 15 months. Some physicians perform extensive procedures, and others limit operation to the medial and posterior parts of the foot. We propose a classification system for idiopathic clubfoot in an attempt to standardize procedures.
