    "For the patients with hallux valgus, the remodeling of the first metatarsophalangeal joint by the Keller's operation can rectify HVA, improve the stability of the joints, and prevent occurrence of the insufficient muscle strength after operation."

    Oh come on! A Keller will improve the stability of "the joints" and prevent occurrence of the insufficient muscle strength (whatever that means) !!!!!!!!!

    The Keller resectional arthroplasty is a salvage procedure that should be saved for those geriatric patients with severe HAV with sufficient symptoms that surgery is indicated and who are not candidates for a "better" procedure.

    Ok, so this group of (presumably) well intentioned workers have a long way to go. Or have figured out a new way to do it. :empathy:The information is polar opposite to what is know about the Keller's arthroplasty. I cannot see the whole article with references but would suspect key work is omitted. Perhaps another, with the stomach for it, could take this study and provide a critical evaluation and report on the work - as a way of demonstrating how poor research can find a way into scientific papers. Why is this group even looking at this procedure, when those questions have been put to rest for decades. ?:bang:

    I concur with Steve.:drinks
