Abstract

The feet of 215 female patients were studied in order to make a comparison of hallux valgus deformity between patients in their teen years and older patients. Significant differences were found in the intermetatarsal angle between the 1st and 5th metatarsals (IM 1-5A) between patients in their 20s and those in their 60s. A significant difference was also found in the hallux valgus angle between patients in their teens and those in their 50s. Looking at the correlation between the intermetatarsal angle between the 1st and 2nd metatarsals (IM 1-2A) and the hallux valgus angle, it was found that the correlation was weaker among the teen patients than among older patients.
