Abstract: A retrospective study was conducted on 58 severe idiopathic clubfeet in 40 children treated surgically using Carroll's approach between 1984 and 1995. All had serial manipulation and casting initially. Postoperative follow-up averaged 5.5 years. Clinical and radiographic analysis using criteria modified from Porat revealed 85% good and excellent results. Carroll's approach allows for complete soft tissue releases and gives good long term results.
