Hallux varus: Review and surgical treatment Volume 30, issue 2, Juin 2014

Authors

Hallux varus is an uncommon but poorly tolerated deformity of the first ray. While the cause is often multifactorial, it most commonly occurs iatrogenically after a hallux valgus correction. Care must be taken to determine the etiology when planning surgical treatment. After failure of conservative care, surgical treatment may be considered which may include soft tissue procedures, tendon transfers, bony correction, and arthrodesis. In conclusion, hallux varus is an important multifactorial clinical problem which takes careful planning to successfully treat.
