The reoperated clubfeet of 29 children aged one to 12 years were reviewed. The surgical procedure most often used in revision surgery was recomplete soft-tissue release alone or combined with plantar release, calcaneocuboid fusion, and capsulotomies of the navicular-first cuneiform-first metatarsal joint. In 27 of 29 feet, acceptable results were achieved. Nineteen were excellent and good results. An algorithm that suggests surgical solutions to a variety of clubfoot deformities in different age groups has been developed, as well as an objective rating system, to evaluate the long-term results of revision surgery of clubfeet.
