Our e-learning platform contains high resolution images and a certified CME of the Hallux valgus: Lateral MTP joint release ( modified McBrides procedure) surgical procedure.

The open lateral release technique demonstrated here is the commonest way of mobilising the lateral aspect of the first Metatarso-phalangeal joint.

This is one key step in the correction of moderate and severe Hallux valgus deformities.

If a minimally invasive technique is used the objectives are broadly the same though the execution different.

A release can also be done in a more limited fashion by dissecting through the lateral aspect of the joint. This technique can also be used in the correction of severe deformity using a first MTP fusion and  a mild Hallux valgus.
