About the webinar:
Historically, there are well over 100 operations described for hallux valgus. In modern clinical practice this has significantly reduced with the majority of surgeons performing a distal metatarsal osteotomy (scarf or chevron) for mild deformities. Larger deformities with intermatatarsal angles of over 20 degrees are usually treated with either a fusion of the 1st tarso-metatarsal joint or a proximal osteotomy. In between these extremes, however, there remains a debate regarding the best procedure for reliable and stable correction. We have two surgeons who approach this dilemma from different directions. Dr. Plaass addresses this range, primarily through arthrodesis of the first torso-metatarsal joint. Mr. Carmichael, by preference, will perform a distal metatarsal osteotomy. In this debate they will discuss the reasons for the approach they prefer, present a summary of the literature supporting each technique and review the outcomes with some interesting case examples.
