CPD/CME Points: 1
The Scarf-type osteotomy correction described is most appropriate for Bunionette deformities with a degree of lateral angulation of the 5th metatarsal shaft or an increase in the 4/5 inter-metatarsal angle.
Other operative options include simple resection of the lateral prominence or a more distal or proximal osteotomy.
