Advances in imaging and computerized analyses have enabled three-dimensional bone motion in the treated clubfoot to be measured precisely. Three-dimensional translations and rotations of the talus, calcaneus, navicular, and cuboid of surgically treated club-feet were less in magnitude and sometimes different in direction (or without motion in a specific plane) compared with the contralateral normal feet. Surgical techniques used for clubfoot treatment do not restore normal hindfoot bone motion when examined with high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging, computer reconstruction, and image analysis techniques. These data advance the knowledge of hindfoot bone motion and establish a new and quantitative objective.
