A patient with hallux abducto valgus must be checked both clinically and with normal X-ray. It is important to find the exact defect location and its entity in order to plan the right operation. The surgeon must choose among more than 100 operations to correct the deformity and not only the “valgus”.
The authors show the most important clinical tests and radiographic assessments and their plan of management of the patient.
They explain when and why they choose type of operation.
They review their case reports from 1999 to 2002 to control the right diagnosis, the correct surgical indication and the patient satisfaction.
