Hallux Varus ELFAH
Hallux varus is most commonly due to over-correction of hallux valgus. The following technical errors predispose to over-correction:
* over-release of the lateral capsule of the 1st MTP joint
* over-resection of the medial eminence of the 1st MT head
* fibular sesamoidectomy (especially in the traditional McBride procedure)
Hallux varus may also be congenital, often in association with metatarsus varus, and occasionally occurs as a neuromuscular deformity.
Up to 15Â° of hallux varus is usually well tolerated provided the toe is not too stiff.
