Abstract

The aim of this study was to present the functional results of treatment of neglected clubfoot in children with Moebius syndrome. A prospective analysis of seven patients with Moebius syndrome who had corrective surgery for clubfoot deformity was performed. Functional result using a modified American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) questionnaire at an average follow-up of 58 months was analysed. Five children were able to have their foot flat on the ground. Additional corrective surgery was required in eight feet. Our experience of treating neglected clubfoot deformity in children with Moebius syndrome shows that correction of the deformity allows them to have a reasonable independent living.
