Sun WD, Wen JM. [Analysis of stability and healing on minimally invasive osteotomy for the treatment of hallux valgus]. Zhongguo Gu Shang. 2016;29(3):228-31.
To treat hallux valgus, minimally invasive osteotomy on 1st metatarsal neck,immobilization with "8-shape" bandagev was performed, and the effect was definited. The principles of osteotomy stability were analyzed from the osteotomy position, methods, direction and angle. The grinding drill was used to increase friction coefficient between the ends of osteotomy. Correct direction of osteotomy and suitable angle were the key point of stability. The immobilization with "8-shape" bandage complied with the principle of elastic fixation created the conditions for the slight movement of the osteotomy ends. Compared with internal fixation ,it was better on osteotomy healing,and the osteotomy ends were stable and healed with cartilage.
