    Readers of this abstract ought, perhaps, not take this information at face value. Even if this is a Level II study. The outcome of this work depends completely on the radiographic parameters proposed by Lee et al, that attempt to determine hindfoot deformity. It is recommended to take the reading one level further, and to review the paper by Lee et al. This forms the hub of the analysis. This analysis is sturdy only IF we can accept Lee's paper, a Level III study. I have read both papers. I remain to be convinced.

    There are other issues, not least the fact the study did not discriminate between flexible and rigid deformity. Also, this is a static appraisal of foot function. Is it possible, to extrapolate from this, dynamic foot function?

    Humanity rarely stands still, for very long.

    If we do, it's likely we do not get a bunion.
