Eighteen patients (34 feet) with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita treated by talectomy for rigid equinovarus deformity were reviewed. The average follow-up was 11 years. Twenty-four feet (71%) were considered satisfactory; the remainder were improved. Seven feet required further operations to correct recurrence of the deformity, but finally all could be fitted with boots or shoes and all patients could walk. The history of talectomy is reviewed and the operative details described.
