Xarchas KC, Mavrolias D, Kyriakopoulos G - Open Orthop J (2014)

Bottom Line: Patients were of an average age of 52 years old (from 21 to 75 years of age) and were followed up for a mean of 12 months post-operatively.Patient evaluation was made with the symptom scoring system as presented by Kataraglis et al., with the final outcome being satisfactory in all of the cases.This set of modifications introduced to the original Wilson's osteotomy, proved to offer a stable, predictable and satisfactory outcome in all cases and we strongly recommend it.

ABSTRACT
We introduce a new set of modifications and present the results from 48 patients (a total of 60 feet operated), who underwent this modified Wilson's osteotomy for the correction of Hallux Valgus. Patients were of an average age of 52 years old (from 21 to 75 years of age) and were followed up for a mean of 12 months post-operatively. Patient evaluation was made with the symptom scoring system as presented by Kataraglis et al., with the final outcome being satisfactory in all of the cases. This set of modifications introduced to the original Wilson's osteotomy, proved to offer a stable, predictable and satisfactory outcome in all cases and we strongly recommend it.

Mentions: All of the surgical operations were performed by the same surgeon, under general or regional (spinal) anesthesia and with the concomitant use of a pneumatic tourniquet. The steps of the operation were as follows: A medial longitudinal skin section centered over the first metatarsophalangeal joint (Figs. 1, 2) was followed by a “Y”-shaped capsular incision and exostectomy (Fig. 3).
