Abstract

In 1866, Adams1 described the abnormal shape of the neck and the head of the talus from autopsies of an infant with clubfoot. In 1974, Hjelmstedt and Sahlstedt7 studied deformity of the talus in congenital clubfoot by arthrography and dissection. Kameshita8 also reported deformities of the talar neck using arthrography. Our simultaneous arthrographic analyses of the ankle and talonavicular joints in club-feet have also revealed medial deviation and shortness of the talar neck.11
