Failures and complications of bunion correction

Prina P., Caruso E., Franceschini M., Franceschini R.


PDF  


Hallux valgus has multiple origins. Over the years, several explanations have been given for such deformity and many surgical options have been mentioned. In this paper, failures and complications of these surgical procedures are described, comparing the available literature. The Authors report their personal experience showing description and illustration of the most significant cases, operated in the last years in this Hospital. The aim is not to criticize choices that have been made, but to point out all the problems that can affect the outcome of bunion surgery. In some cases, in which our experience is directly involved, the causes of such problems are analysed in order to avoid to repeat them in the future.
