We applied the Ilizarov technique and apparatus to the correction of 24 severe foot deformities in 21 children. We were able to achieve a serviceable plantigrade foot in all cases, with nine feet achieving an excellent result, 12 achieving a good result, three being fair, and none poor. Ilizarov's technique and apparatus offer an excellent adjunct for treating carefully selected severe foot deformities in children.
