More than 130 operations have been described for the treatment of hallux valgus, However, no evidence that any of these methods of treatment are superior to the others has been described, excepting studies in the long term. The aim of this study was to analyse a series of patients who had undergone Proximal osteotomy of first metatarsal and Mc Bride procedure and had been followed up for 5 years. In This prospective study During a 6 years period, (2005-2010), 25 feet in 24 cases with hallux valgus underwent Proximal first metatarsal osteotomy and MCbride procedure, With a mean follow-up of 3/5±1/5 years. The cases were evaluated by American Orthopaedics Foot & Ankle Society HalluxMetatarsophalangeal-interphalangeal scale (AOFAS/HMI). Pre and post hallux valgus angle (HVA), intermetatarsal angle (1-2IMA), and the correlation between the angles and patient satisfaction were statistically evaluated. The mean angular corrections for hallux valgus (HVA), and intermetatarsal angle (IMA) were 28 and 10/6 degrees respectively. 13 Patients reported good to excellent results, while in 11 cases dissatisfaction were reported. Proximal first metatarsal osteotomy and Mc Bride procedure for hallux valgus is an acceptable procedure in Patients with hallux valgus deformity correction.Pain and first MTP joint contractures are two main side effects.
