This fascinating little book emphasizes the importance of a more temperate operative approach to the treatment of congenital clubfoot in children and stresses the importance of manipulation, stretching, and the use of casts. In the preface, the author states: "Our treatment, supported by limited operative interventions and based on a clear understanding of the functional anatomy of the foot, has yielded optimum results in a high percentage of patients." Certainly, the results are impressive, as shown by Cooper and Dietz in the article "Treatment of Idiopathic Clubfoot. A Thirty-Year Follow-up Note" (J. Bone and Joint Surg., 77-A: 1477—1489, Oct. 1995).
