Correction of adolescent hallux valgus by proximal crescentic osteotomy of the first metatarsal



Correction of adolescent hallux valgus by proximal crescentic osteotomy of the first metatarsal



Acta Orthopaedica Belgica 74(4): 496-502



Thirty nine surgical hallux valgus corrections in 32 adolescents (7 bilateral) performed between 1994 and 2001 were retrospectively studied. The mean age at the time of surgery was 14.2 years. The operation consisted of a proximal dome osteotomy of the first metatarsal, excision of the medial protuberance, lateral capsular and adductor release, and distal medial soft tissue plication. The patients were followed for an average of 42 months (range 32 to 62). Post-operative evaluation was based on the duPont bunion rating score. The result was excellent in 11 feet, good in 22 cases, fair in 5 and poor in 1 case. Using subjective criteria of the duPont score, such as cosmesis and discomfort, a satisfactory result was achieved in 35 feet (90%). Our opinion is that correction of the angle between the 1st and 2nd metatarsal as well as preservation of the length of the first metatarsal are of crucial importance in the surgical treatment of adolescent hallux valgus.
