Fifth metatarsal shaft osteotomy has demonstrated efficacy for bunionette. We adapted screwless 1st metatarsal scarf osteotomy to the 5th ray. The technique consists in short osteotomy, translation and diaphyseal bone-suture. We report the first 25 operated feet, with mean AOFAS score 58.4 preoperatively and 94.9 postoperatively at a mean 25 months' follow-up. These results were comparable to reported data, whatever the deformity.
