CTEV - another mnemonic

Here's another mnemonic for CTEV (Congentital Talipes Equino Varus) submitted by Alan James (Thanks):


"InAdEquate" The deformities of the foot in Congenital Talipes Equino Varus(CTEV) are:
Inversion
Adduction
Equinus

Also think: "tAlIpEs", to remember the sequence of correction of deformities:
Adduction
Inversion
Equinus

By the way, if you want to refer to our old mnemonic, for order of correction of deformities, it's HERE.
