Percutaneous distal metatarsal osteotomy for correction of hallux valgus.
One of the most frequent techniques involves a combination of chevron osteotomy of the firstmetatarsal with osteotomy of the first phalanx, both internally fixated. Lateral metatarsal misalignment and toe deformities can also be addressed by percutaneous treatment, with lower morbidity rates than open techniques.
