NERY, Caio Augusto de Souza; APOSTOLICO NETTO, Alfonso; BENEVENTO, Márcio  and  RESSIO, Cibele. Radiographic evaluation of the hallux valgus: population study of new angular parameters. Acta ortop. bras. [online]. 2001, vol.9, n.2, pp.41-48. ISSN 1809-4406.

Stimulated by the growing interest in the intrinsic factors at the genesis of the deformity of the hallux valgus, the authors studied the distal articular angle of the first metatarsal (DMAA), the proximal articular (PFPAA), and the distal articular of the proximal phalanx of the hallux (PFDAA). To do so, they evaluated the AP incidence of 70 grownup and normal Brazilian individual (140 feet) in orthostatic position with ages ranging from 18 to 55 years (29 in the average), 40 of which (57.1%) were female and 30 (42.9%) were male. The statistical analysis to wich the data were submitted pointed out as upper limts of normality, for the population studied, the following figures: 8 degrees for DMAA, 8 degrees for PFPAA and 10 degrees for PFDAA.

Keywords : Foot; Hallux Valgus.
