The Hallux Varus is a deformity of the first radius which has a deviation of the great toe towards a medial or tibial direction. Visually, it is the antithesis of hallux valgus or bunion. We can see a supination of the great toe and a negative metatarsophalangeal angle. This anomaly has several causes: Functional: as […]
The hallux extensus consists of the dorsiflexion or dorsal extension of the first radius. Its origin may be congenital or acquired and it is mainly caused by: a paralysis, involving brain-vascular accidents and neuromuscular diseases, among others; due to different types of alterations at the metatarsophalangeal and interphalangeal joint, such as the shortening of the […]
Hallux abductus valgus is a deformity affecting the metatarsophalangeal joint of the first radius of the foot as well as the sesamoids and first toe. It is characterized by the deviation of the first toe medial axis relative to the body and by rotation of the valgus. This causes a dislocation of the metatarsophalangeal joint, […]
Hallux flexus is an anomaly of the big toe that causes an elevation of the head of the first metatarsal and a plantarflexion of the proximal phalanx. Structurally the metatarsophalangeal joint adopts a certain degree of dorsiflexion while the interphalangeal joint forms a plantarflexion to compensate. This deformity of the first radius is accompanied by […]
