The most common complication following minimally invasive surgery (MIS) foot procedures is recurrence of the deformity, likely a direct consequence of incorrect selection of the procedure, incorrect surgical technique, or underestimated healing time of the osteotomy. This article describes our surgical MIS for hallux valgus correction, including the postoperative management, and reviews the literature on MIS for hallux valgus correction. The reports on such techniques are few, and mainly case series are reported. More adequately planned and executed randomized prospective clinical trials are needed.

Abstract

The most common complication following minimally invasive surgery (MIS) foot procedures is recurrence of the deformity, likely a direct consequence of incorrect selection of the procedure, incorrect surgical technique, or underestimated healing time of the osteotomy. This article describes our surgical MIS for hallux valgus correction, including the postoperative management, and reviews the literature on MIS for hallux valgus correction. The reports on such techniques are few, and mainly case series are reported. More adequately planned and executed randomized prospective clinical trials are needed. Historical attempts, indications, preferred surgical techniques, and complications are discussed.
