The term halluxvalgus was first mentioned by Carl Hueter in 1870.
The halluxvalgus complex is characterised as a combined deformity with a malpositioning in the first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint with lateral deviation
The incidence of complications of halluxvalgus surgeries ranges from 10 to 55% ( 1 , 2 ). Current literature has described the complications of halluxvalgus surgery and their treatment options ( 3 , 4 ). Iatrogenic transfer

Halluxvalgus is a deformity of the first metatarsophalangeal joint (MTPJ), causing pain, functional disability, and impaired gait patterns ( 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 ). With an estimated 36% prevalence in the elderly, it is a common

Halluxvalgus has been associated with third and fourth metatarsal brachymetatarsia, because the first and

If the injury is more medially based and there is concern of a traumatic halluxvalgus, a toe separator between the hallux and second toes can provide further support.
