7th Congress of the European Federation of National Associations of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, Lisbon - 4-7 June, 2005


The concept of a congruent and incongruent joint will be introduced and the results of various distal osteotomies will be presented. The differential diagnosis of pain around the 1st metatarsophalangeal joint will also be discussed.

Although not exclusively a complication of distal osteotomies, the correction of acquired hallux varus will also be presented.

Theses abstracts were prepared by Professor Roger Lemaire. Correspondence should be addressed to EFORT Central Office, Freihofstrasse 22, CH-8700 Küsnacht, Switzerland.
