Abstract

PURPOSE
Medial capsulorrhaphy is additional hallux reduction method following various hallux reduction procedures and we are going to report author's opinion about several methods of medial capsulorrhaphy.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
We performed three kinds of medial capsulotomy and imbricatory capsulorrhaphy in hallux valgus surgery. Through 8 cadavar study, we compared the easiness of sesamoid reduction and hallux valgus angle reduction. Also, we measured thickness of capsule in various portions.
RESULTS
Longitudinal capsule incision and imbrication was useful in sesamoid reduction and vertical procedures was useful in hallux valgus angle reduction. The capsule thickness was measured thickest in dorsal and distal portioin.
CONCLUSION
The methods of medial capsulorrhaphy should be planned preoperatively considering individual hallux deformities. These selected medial capsulorrhaphy can help the reduction of hallux valgus deformity correction and its maintenance
