Abstract

Relapse of clubfoot is known as the recurrence of deformity after the treatment. There are a number of reasons because of which this problem occurs in the patients with previous history of club foot. The use of Ponseti method, which is used for decades 1 and non-compliance of patients are the roots of the relapsing club foot. The relapsing can be avoided by using the feasible approaches. Treatment of relapse includes abduction and complete compliance with the treatment procedures. If the relapse is corrected earlier, there will be greater chances of quality treatment as compared to late treatment. The reason behind it is that earlier interventions can lead to the prevention of soft tissue surgeries.2
