Treatment of hallux valgus

Abstract

The reasons for hallux valgus are hard to define. It is a multifactorial forefoot deformity with a complex pathogenesis, which most commonly affects women aged forty to sixty. It is characterised by anatomic deformities associated with mild to severe cutaneous alterations. Radiographic examinations are fundamental in the diagnosis, as they allow surgeons to select the surgical strategic plan after clinical assessment of the intermetatarsal angle, the metatarsophalangeal, the PASA and DASA. The main purposes of surgery are to decrease severe pain and inflammation and correct deformity. Through the years, a wide variety of operations and treatment techniques have been developed and adapted according to individual cases. We can classify minimally invasive hallux valgus corrective techniques into three main groups: percutaneous techniques (MIFS), percutaneous techniques with internal fixations, and minimally invasive techniques with temporary fixations like Kirschner wires (SERI or PDO).
