A new operation for hallux valgus


, : A new operation for hallux valgus. Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research: 179-183

A distal oblique osteotomy on the first metatarsal, with lateral displacement of the metatarsophalangeal joint and internal fixation with a compression screw, was performed. No splint or plaster was used. The operation is relatively simple and effective. Pain and discomfort during a short healing period are minimal. Forty-nine feet were operated on in 42 patients by eight surgeons. The patients were advised to bear full weight after six weeks. Return to unlimited work was possible after six weeks. The complications were superficial infection in one case and screws entering the metatarsophalangeal joint in two cases. One patient complained of metatarsalgia after the operation, but all other patients were satisfied after follow-up periods ranging from three months to six years.

We show that applying strain on half-doped manganites makes it possible to tune the system to the proximity of a metal-insulator transition and thereby generate a colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) response. This phase competition not only allows co...
