- Scientific TitleThe effect of postoperative physiotherapy, after Chevron osteotomy, on foot function. A randomized controlled trial.
- ACRONYM
- hypothesisPostoperative physiotherapy, after Chevron osteotomy, will promote the function of the first MTP joint, as expressed by a difference in AOFAS hallux score of 10 points, compared to a study group without postoperative physiotherapy, after a six months period of follow-up.

- Inclusion criteria1. Patients with an indication for Chevron osteotomy: Intractable pain isolated to the first or second MTP joint region, associated with a hallux valgus deformity, refractory to conservative treatment (shoe modifications, NSAIDs, modification of activities), with following rontgenographic details: Intermetatarsal Angle ≤ 20o;
2. Age 18-65;
3. Physiologic preoperative gait pattern.
- Exclusion criteriaSpecific comorbidity: Inflammatory arthritis, degenerative arthritis of the first MTP joint, previous foot surgery, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes mellitus, peripheral vascular disease, neuropathy, neuromuscular disease, active infection, incompetent person.

- InterventionsPostoperative physiotherapy, after surgical correction of a hallux valgus deformity, by a Chevron osteotomy.
Two groups of patients will be compared. Both groups will be operated, with surgical correction of the hallux valgus. One group will undergo a standard postoperative treatment. The second group will receive additional physiotherapy, according to a standardized protocol.
- Primary outcomeAOFAS Hallux score.
- Secondary outcome1. Function of first MTP-joint: This will be measured by placing a hand-held goniometer parallel to the long axis of the first metatarsal and the hallux;
2. Foot Function Index25;
3. VAS pain/satisfaction/ cosmesis.
- TimepointsPreoperative, 6 weeks, 3 months and 1 year postoperative.

- Brief summaryRationale:
Only a few studies, of poor quality and design, have focussed on the postoperative treatment after surgical hallux valgus correction. Conflicting results have been reported regarding postoperative foot function, after surgical correction of hallux valgus.

Objective:
Evaluation of the effect of postoperative physiotherapy, after Chevron osteotomy, on foot function.

Study design:
Randomized controlled trial in a single centre, with one year follow-up.

Study population:
Patients with a symptomatic hallux valgus deformity, without effective conservative treatment, aged between 18 and 65.

Intervention:
Postoperative physiotherapy, consistent with our specific treatment protocol.

Primary endpoint:
AOFAS Hallux score.

Burden and risks:
No risks, as result of inclusion in this study. Patients randomized to the physiotherapy group will undergo several sessions of physiotherapy. Both groups will be asked to fill out several questionnaires, during their visits to the outpatient clinic. This will lead to extra time. All other aspects pre and postoperatively are normal activities and efforts, as result of normal patient care, apart from the study.
