Twelve adult patients who had been treated for talipes equinovarus were studied. A flat-top talus was found in all of the twenty ankles involved. The mean age of the patients was forty-two years. All patients had a measurably decreased range of motion in the ankle, but it caused them little or no pain. Only one patient had significant pain and limitation of activity.
