The management of juvenile and adolescent hallux valgus: current concepts and treatment. Current Orthopaedic Practice

Abstract

Several clinical characteristics separate juvenile and adolescent hallux abducto valgus from its adult counterpart, including the lack of degenerative joint disease and bursal thickening, less pronation, and less sesamoid subluxation. This deformity is more common in girls and has a genetic component. Currently consensus is lacking on the optimal surgical treatment after failure of conservative treatment; however, options exist with careful patient selection. This article describes the current concepts and approaches to treatment.
