Abstract

In general, moderate to severe hallux valgus deformity with metatarsus primus varus demands correction with a first metatarsal shaft osteotomy; in such deformity, distal osteotomies are associated with a high recurrence rate. Several different first metatarsal shaft osteotomy patterns continue to be performed, with the particular technique based on surgeon preference (Table 2.1) Typically, a distal soft-tissue procedure is performed in conjunction with a first metatarsal shaft osteotomy.
