Clubfoot: Ponseti Management (booklet)
This 32 page, four-colour book provides information on all aspects of Ponseti management of clubfoot. It was designed for health care professionals, trainees and families to provide information about this technique. The book was authored by Dr Ponseti, his Iowa colleagues and others, who have mastered this casting technique. We recommend that Dr Ponseti’s technique be learned in a course using this book as a reference.
Authors: Foreword by Ignacio Ponseti
Contributors: Ignacio Ponseti, Shafique Pirani, Fred Dietz, Jose Morcuende, Vincent Mosca, John Herzenberg, Stuart Weinstein, Norgrove Penny, Michiel Steenbeek
Editor: Lynn Staheli
This is the second edition of this book, with some translations already in the third edition.
The first edition was published in November 2003 and translated into four languages. 10 000 copies were printed and distributed in over 50 countries. In this second edition, we have shortened some sections while adding others to make the book more complete and up-to-date. Guided by feedback from the authors and readers, the book has been reorganised. Each of the authors has contributed their material and experience.
