Congenital talipes equinovarus deformity ( CTEV ) or more commonly known as club foot is a congenital deformity involving the foot and ankle giving rise to a plantar flexed, internally rotated and adducted foot. The incidence is about 1 in 1000 live births with a male to female ratio of 2:1. 50% cases are bilateral. It can be detected on an antenatal ultrasound as early as 16 weeks gestational age.
