Abstract

Recurrence is a common complication following hallux valgus surgery. The postoperative recurrence rates have been reported to be between 2.7% and 16%. Reoperation is considered only for the recurrent deformities with intractable pain. The success of reoperation depends on identifying and addressing the cause of the recurrence appropriately. The surgical principle of reoperation for a recurrent hallux valgus is similar to that of the primary surgery, but arthrodesis and proximal metatarsal osteotomies with greater correcting power are adopted more frequently.
