Literature Update November 2012
Share |

This regular e-update is provided by the Academy to raise awareness of current research in orthotics and prosthetics published outside of the Journal of Prosthetics and Orthotics (JPO).

The list below is the result of a search for articles including the terms "orthotic devices" and "artificial limbs" indexed April – June 2012.
Where available, links to freely accessible full text versions of the article are provided. Where a link to the abstract only is provided, the full article may be available for purchase. Results were edited for clinical relevance.

The featured article is a study from eight hospitals in Norway of 116 children with 162 clubfeet treated with the Ponseti method. The study reports on follow-up clinical outcomes such as Pirani scores, surgery, casting, Denis Browne bar versus above-the-knee bracing outcomes, and compliance over a two- to five-year period. The authors conclude that the Ponseti method offers desirable clinical outcomes.

Use the quick links below to jump to each category.

The individual article format and availability (either freely accessible or abstract form) is at the discretion of the article's respective publisher.
