Abstract

A 22-month old child underwent successful replantation of her midfoot at the level of Chopart's joint after a traumatic lawn mower amputation. The child demonstrated good sensation and function. Heel-to-toe length was 2 cm shorter, along with anterior migration of the heel pad on the injured foot. Pedobarographic analysis at 6-year follow-up demonstrated a normal range in the dynamic distribution of foot pressure measurements, except in the region of the medial heel. With replantation more commonly considered as an option in traumatic injuries, long-term functional evaluation is important in demonstrating the success of a replantation. The patient demonstrated a good result at 6-year follow-up, but will need further evaluation until skeletal maturity is reached.
