dc.description.abstractenglishIntroduction: Congenital Talipes Equinovarus (CTEV) or clubfoot is one of the most common congenital abnormalities1, 2. Early diagnosis by means of ultrasonography allows an opportune intervention and improves the deformity’s correction prognosis. Goal: To describe patients diagnosed with CTEV by means of prenatal sonographies between 2003 and 2012 in Bogotá (Colombia) at both the Instituto de Ortopedia Infantil Roosevelt (IOIR) and one of the authors’ private office. Methods: A descriptive, retrospective study on the focus population was made. The equality of the data of the quantitative variables in distance measure was analysed by the Kolmogorov–Smirnov test. For the variables “prenatal diagnoses” and “days from the start of the treatment” the Mann– Whitney U test was used. Finally, an analysis was made by means of the SPSS Statistics software package, version 18.0. Results: 178 patients met the selection criteria. 34.3% of the patients had a prenatal diagnosis by ultrasonography (n=61). Regarding the number of prenatal ultrasounds performed, there were statistically significant differences between the patients with a CTEV prenatal diagnoses and those whose diagnoses came after birth, being higher in the first group (p<0.001). The number of days before the treatment started once the pre or postnatal diagnosis was done was also a subject of study. Significant differences were found in the treatment start between patients with a prenatal diagnosis (mean of 9.9 days) and those diagnosed after birth (mean of 30 days) (p<0.001). Conclusions: prenatal diagnosis by foetal ultrasonography contributes to an early detection of musculoskeletal abnormalities such as CTEV and promotes an early intervention of the
