    The authors have suggested amputation for the child, then what is the rational for doing a club foot correction when they have suggested amputation for the child at a later date? Second issue is that the authors have not mentioned the limb length discrepancy and proportion of shortening which warrants amputation and which determines the line of management. They have not mentioned regarding the presence or absence of active knee extension that is a functional quadriceps which is an important prerequisite for reconstruction.
