ABSTRACT
The article presents a comparison of how the Lindgren osteotomy compares with the distal chevron osteotomy on patients with hallux valgus. Researchers used a randomized, blinded, and controlled trial. Results showed that in patients with hallux valgus, no significant differences in clinical improvement were seen for the Lindgren osteotomy or the distal chevron method. A better radiographic correction was obtained with the Lindren method.
