Fifty-two feet treated by clubfoot release without wide subtalar release were evaluated 4.2-10.8 years after surgery. Eleven feet (21%) had undergone additional operative procedures at the time of review, and 82% of feet had good or excellent functional ratings at that time. The mean talocalcaneal index was 49° (range 12-76°), indicating that correction of the subtalar joint occurred in some patients. This procedure satisfactorily corrects many feet but undercorrects some. Overcorrection was rare. Foot progression angles were also determined and are reported in an accompanying article.
