Abstract

Metatarsus adductus, either isolated or in association with deformities elsewhere in the foot, is a common problem in children. In most cases, nonoperative treatment is successful in correcting forefoot alignment. However, in particularly severe cases, a surgical solution is required. Various methods have been described; some have attacked the deformity at the metatarsal level,2,16 some at Lisfranc’s joint,5 some at the midtarsal level,6–8,12 some at Chopart’s joint,4,9 and still others at the hindfoot.15,17
