Abstract

The outcomes of surgical treatment by postero-medial soft tissue release through the hemi-Cincinnati incision of 67 idiopathic clubfeet were assessed at a mean age of 8.5 years. Morphological, functional, radiological and subjective outcomes were assessed on a scale with a maximum of 75 points for each of these domains. The mean morphological, functional, radiological and subjective evaluation scores were 71 ± 4.6, 60 ± 7, 36 ± 10 and 72 ± 3 respectively. Thirteen children complained of mild pain after strenuous physical activity. All children had some loss of motion of the ankle. Forty three of the 45 parents (or patients) expressed satisfaction with the outcome of treatment. Fifty-eight feet did not require any additional surgery following the index operation while nine feet required additional surgery for relapse. There was good correlation between functional and morphological scores and moderate correlation between radiological and morphological scores. Subjective scores were poorly correlated to all other scores.
