    91% satisfied.

    First, we are not told what "satisfied" means.

    Secondly, I don't feel 10% "unsatisfied" should be viewed as successful when dealing with an elective procedure on MILD to MODERATE deformity.

    Third(ly), why are they performing a distal metarsal osteotomy on Mild deformities?

    It's always difficult to offer a meaningful comment without reading the entire paper. However, even in the summary it would be reasonable to expect to see the pre-op. IM angle mentioned since it is later referred to. Also (am I misreading it?) or does it state that the K wire is placed following the incision and then contradict the statement by saying it is placed prior to the skin incision?

    Objective assessment is always better than subjective!
