The function, timing of knee fusion, and complications were presented as well as patients’ assessment of their function and appearance. Eight patients, aged 8.37 years (range: 3–16 years) during surgery, were evaluated. The mean follow-up duration was 9.25 years (range: 6–12 years). At follow-up, all the patients were pain free and able to ambulate outdoors. Complications included derotation of the foot in five patients, necessitating a re-rotation osteotomy in two. All patients accepted their appearance, considering the rotation-plasty beneficial for their functional status. Copyright © 2018 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
