The authors have studied anatomical specimens and findings at time of surgery to determine the functional anatomy of clubfoot. The importance of the midtarsal joints (especially of the talonavicular joint) is emphasized as well as the importance of the tibialis posterior. The findings of the authors concerning the function of these elements have allowed them to develop a new approach to the treatment of clubfoot.
