Axial Loading Screw Fixation for Chevron Type Osteotomies of the Distal First Metatarsal: A Retrospective Outcomes Analysis

Abstract: The distal chevron osteotomy is a widely accepted technique for the treatment of hallux abductovalgus deformity. Although the osteotomy is considered to be stable, displacements of the capital fragment has been described. We propose a new method for fixation of the osteotomy involving the axial loading screw (ALS) used in addition to single screw fixation
