J Foot Ankle Surg. Mar-Apr 2000;39(2):120-3. doi: 10.1016/s1067-2516(00)80036-8.


Hallux varus is usually iatrogenic in nature; however, congenital and acquired etiologies have been described in the literature. The authors present a case of traumatic hallux varus secondary to rupture of the adductor tendon. Surgical correction was performed using a soft tissue anchor for maintenance of the soft tissues utilized for repair.
