Skin necrosis and wound problems complicate surgical release of severe neglected clubfoot. This is primarily due to excessive tension on the skin edges and a poor understanding of abnormal vascular anatomy in clubfoot. We report a technique of primary skin closure using a local rotation fasciocutaneous flap using the conventional posteromedial skin incision (Turco). Primary uncomplicated wound healing was achieved within 2 weeks in all 16 rigid and neglected clubfeet (1-7 years) operated by this technique. This flap is scientifically logical, technically easy and ensures primary wound healing.
