There were 85 feet on 58 patients of which 36 were male. In 46% of the patients the deformity was bilateral. At the time of surgery most of the patients were between the ages of 1-2 years. After an average follow-up of 10 months (Range 3-39 mo). 76 feet (89%) were clinically considered to be in perfect or good condition. These results were obtained on Patients that had complete subtalar release operations or medial release between the ages of 6 to 12 months. The results were better in patients that had received conservative treatment prior to surgical intervention. Radiologic evaluation was also performed and it was found that the greatest amount of correction in the talocalcaneal index was in patients that had CSTR between the ages of 1-2 years.
