Classical subtalar arthrodesis is not advisable in children less than 12 years of age. Extra-articular fusion was suggested by Grice (1952) who obtained successful fusion and correction of valgus deformity by inserting grafts from upper tibia into the sinus tarsi. Brown 1968), and Seymour and Evans (1968) reported a much simpler operation using fibular graft to transfix the talus and calcaneum. It was a modification of Grice’s procedure as originally suggested by J. S. Batchelor of Guy’s Hospital, London. Six years experience with Batchelor’s technique, in 50 children suffering from post-polio paralytic valgus instability, is reviewed in this presentation.
