Ten cases of CTEV were treated by method of controlled differential fractional distraction with Joshi’s External Stabilization System (JESS) between Oct, 97 to July 99. We used JESS for either neglected, resistant or recurrent cases of CTEV. Patients were in the age group of 3 to 7 years. The patients were operated after thorough clinical and radiological assessment and post operative follow up was done at regular interval to evaluate correction. Average follow up period was 8 months. Our results were Excellent 1,Good 4, Fair 4, and Poor 1. The only complication encountered was pin tract infection in one case requiring early removal of assembly leading to partial correction of deformity thereby giving rise to poor results.
