Abstract

Appropriate treatment for hallux varus requires comprehensive radiographic and systematic clinical assessment to identify the involved factors. A classification scheme must incorporate many variables in order to determine the best approach to correcting the deformity. This article focuses on iatrogenic hallux varus following bunion surgery, but the same principles apply to other causes of acquired hallux varus.
