Short-term Clinical and Radiologic Results of the Scarf Osteotomy: What Factors Contribute to Recurrence?

Abstract: The present retrospective investigation aimed to determine the factors associated with recurrence of hallux valgus deformity after scarf osteotomy in 50 feet in 43 consecutive patients. We hypothesized that hallux abductovalgus after scarf osteotomy recurs because of the presence of preoperative joint incongruity. The clinical and radiographic findings, including the weightbearing radiographic hallux valgus angle, first intermetatarsal angle, distal metatarsal articular angle, first metatarsophalangeal joint congruence, American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society scores, and pain measured on a visual analog scale, and logistic regression analysis were used to analyze the association of the independent variables with the recurrence of deformity
