Abstract

Summary: Six patients (seven feet) previously treated surgically for clubfoot had a "bean-shaped" foot. Opening wedge medial cuneiform and closing wedge cuboid osteotomies were done, resulting in good resolution of the prominent midfoot supination and forefoot adductus without significant soft tissue dissection and invasion of growing areas in the foot. Cadaver reproductions show that the cuboid closing wedge is responsible for the change in the midfoot, whereas the cuboid and cuneiform osteotomies both contribute to the change in the forefoot.
