Congenital Talipes Equinovarus (CTEV) and club foot surgical treatment mnemonic

The mnemonic for club foot is, "ADMiT IT IS CTEV" and for surgical treatment of CTEV is "STRAIGHTED".

I talk about them in the video. 
Here's a short summary for reference -
Adduction at mid tarsal joint
Internal tibial torsion
Inversion at the sub talar joint

Soft Tissue Release (PMSTR)
CTEV Shoes
CTEV Splint
Arthodesis (Triple Arthodesis)
Ilizarov's method
Tendon transfer
Dwyer's wedge osteotomy
Dilwyn Evan's procedure
Denis Brown splint

Posterior release:
CT structures mnemonic
CAST mnemonic
Medial release:
3 - 3 structures mnemonic
STD ligament mnemonic

That's all!
Hope it helped you all.
