  1. # Note: The clinical examination subscore combines the findings for both heel position in stance and ankle range. Each are ranged from +1 (valgus heel/>0 degrees ankle dorsiflexion) OR 0 (straight heel/0 degrees ankle dorsiflexion) OR -1 (varus heel/<0 degrees ankle dorsiflexion). Neutral to positive scores indicate maintained correction, whilst negative scores are indicative of relapsing deformity.
  2. ^ Note: Scores for bilateral cases were halved to achieve same scale/foot for section C/clinical examination.
