Abstract

The DuVries modification of the McBride distal soft tissue procedure is one of more than 100 techniques described for the correction of the adult hallux valgus deformity. This simple procedure is indicated in the setting of an incongruent metatarsophalangeal joint with a mild and, in some cases, even a moderate hallux valgus deformity. In this article, we present a reliable and reproducible method of performing the modified McBride distal soft tissue procedure. Furthermore, we describe important technical steps that enhance the corrective power and may thereby extend the indications of this procedure.
