A comparison between isolated removal of the pseudoexostosis (Schede) and the combined procedure of proximal transfer of the adductor tendon added to pseudoexostosis removal proved the importance of dissection of the adductor, but failed to demonstrate any advantage of the transfer and shortening of this muscle. Neither procedure improved the metatarsal angle permanently. The hallux valgus angle showed a strong tendency of recurrence after the Schede procedure. Both procedures produced a high rate of subjective satisfaction of over 90%, notwithstanding the objective results.
