The article discusses the correction of hallux valgus using the lateral soft-tissue release and proximal chevron osteotomy through a medial incision in the U.S. The two surgical access for lateral soft-tissue release includes the dorsal approach, and the medial approach, which passes under the first metatarsal head. The author stated that some surgeon preferred to do the distal osteotomy due to its inherent stability for correction of moderate to severe deformity.

    The Ludloff osteotomy is a technique option to address hallux valgus in patients with a moderately to significantly increased first-second intermetatarsal angle. The Ludloff osteotomy is an oblique osteotomy of the first metatarsal extending dorsal-proximal to plantar-distal when viewed in the...

    Purpose: We evaluated the results of the Lindgren-Turan operation in the treatment of hallux valgus. Methods: 24 feet of 18 patients were operated by the Lindgren-Turan osteotomy. Radiological, functional and pain assessments were applied to all patients. Results: Treatment produced a...

    We performed an opening wedge osteotomy of the first cuneiform for the correction of all degrees of hallux valgus deformities. A wedge-shaped graft maintained the open wedge osteotomy and decreased the metatarsocuneiform joint inclination to correct the main angles of the hallux valgus. This...
