In brief: Up to 33%

Fetal talipes equinovarus with or without sandal gap may be associated with a chromosomal abnormality as often as 33% of times, and when associated, other abnormalities are found.
The most common association is with trisomy 18 (having an extra chromosome #18). In one study only 22% had isolated talipes.
