Distal Chevron metatarsal osteotomy for bunionette.

Foot & Ankle 1991 October
Nineteen distal chevron metatarsal osteotomy operations were performed in 13 patients with painful bunionette. The average duration of follow-up was 7.1 years. Mean forefoot score improved from 35.8 points to 73.9 points out of a possible 75 points. Intermetatarsal 4-5 angle, metatarsophalangeal 5 angle, and forefoot width improved significantly. Overall results were considered good in 17 feet and fair in 2; there were no failures. Complications were transfer metatarsalgia (1 foot) and wound infection (1 foot). Distal chevron fifth metatarsal osteotomy is effective treatment for symptomatic bunionette.
