[Current treatment of static deformities of the great toe].

Abstract

The modern techniques of treatment of the hallux valgus are founded on the biomechanic and permit to give again a good function of the big toe. The authors prefer the osseous methods and specially the phalangeal and metatarsal osteotomies. It is necessary also to do a lateral release of the metatarsophalangeal joint and an exostosectomy. The late results are good.
