Abstract

Distal metatarsal osteotomies have been described for surgical treatment of hallux valgus with good results. The aim of this study is to review the results of 299 consecutive hallux valgus cases treated by minimally invasive distal metatarsal osteotomy, S.E.R.I. (Simple, Effective, Rapid, Inexpensive). 299 feet in 190 patients (109 bilateral), aged between 35 and 70 years (mean age: 53 years) affected by hallux valgus were studied. A 1 cm medial incision at the metatarsal neck, and a complete osteotomy, using an oscillating saw were performed. With the naked eye all characteristics of the deformity were corrected by displacement of the metatarsal head (HVA, IMA, DMAA, dorsal or plantar displacement). The osteotomy was stabilized by a 2 mm Kirschner wire. Immediate weight bearing was allowed with gauze bandage and Talus shoes for 4 weeks. All patients were checked at an average follow-up of 4 years. All osteotomies healed no avascular necrosis of the metatarsal head or pseudoarthrosis of the osteotomy was observed. Mean preoperative AOFAS score was 43 and 88 at follow-up. The mean preoperative HVA was 33, while at follow-up it was 16 (P < 0.05), mean preoperative IMA was 13, while at follow-up it was 7 (P < 0.05), mean preoperative DMAA was 20, while at follow-up it was 8 (P < 0.05). S.E.R.I. osteotomy has been simple, effective, rapid and inexpensive in correcting hallux valgus deformity. Clinical and radiographic findings showed an adequate correction of the deformity. © 2007 Springer Paris.
