Abstract

Section of the abductor hallucis tendon is recommended for early correction of the metatarsus adductus deformity especially in the residual of a treated equinovarus foot. The operation is simple and safe, with very little postoperative morbidity. The effectiveness of the procedure is enhanced if a tight abductor hallucis tendon is demonstrated. The operation may also be helpful in conjunction with other surgical procedures for correction of the varus deformity of a clubfoot.
