The effect of brace compliance on the results of idiopathic clubfeet treated by the Ponseti method The use of abduction foot orthoses is an essential part of treatment in the Ponseti method. Recent studies have shown significant correlation between non-compliance and recurrence. Our pilot study involving 30 children indicates that a commercially available temperature sensor and data logger (i-button) is a valid method of assessing compliance in children with clubfoot.

The results of using Ilizarov assisted correction in children with neglected clubfeet Results submitted for publication in peer-reviewed literature.

The results on Ponseti method for the treatment of clubfeet in older children Results submitted for publication in peer-reviewed literature.

Myofibroblast in idiopathic clubfoot (A I DuPont Hospital for Children, January 2003) This study utilised in-situ hybridisation and immunohistochemistry to identify differentiation of fibroblasts in clubfoot specimens into a myofibroblast phenotype. In this study, clubfoot fibroblasts were seen to express PDGF but there was no evidence of ??smooth muscle actin expression. Based on this study, we question the findings of previous studies that implicate the myofibroblast in the aetiology of clubfoot.

Inter-observer reliability in the clinical assessment of Tibial Torsion Torsional problems are common in children with neuromuscular conditions. We have devised a tibial torsion meter to assess whether the use of a standardised device provides more accurate and reliable values compared to the standard clinical method. Brace Compliance in children with idiopathic clubfeet

We assessed the effect of brace compliance in children with idiopathic clubfeet who were treated by Ponseti method. Our results have been submitted for publication in peer-reviewed literature.

Ultrasound assessment of Achilles tendon integrity following tenotomy for older children with clubfeet. Existing studies support the use of complete Achilles tenotomy in children under the age of 2 years. We plan to assess the clinical result and ultrasonographic appearance of the Achilles tendon following a tenotomy in children over the age of 2 years at the time of tenotomy.

Mechanical testing of Flexible Nails in Tibial fractures (Alder Hey Children's Hospital) Flexible Elastic Nailing is an effective solution for Diaphyseal tibial fractures in children. The current recommendation is to use this implant for mid-Diaphyseal fractures only. We plan to use test the stability of an elastic tibial nail construct for oblique, proximal and distal tibial fractures. The study is aimed at providing guidance to clinicians in using elastic nails for these extended indications
