We measured hallux valgus angle (HVA), 1-2 intermetatarsal angle (IMA), proximal articular set angle (PASA), distal articular set angle, hallux interphalangeal angle, metatarsocuneiform angle, size of the medial eminence of the distal first metatarsal, tibial sesamoid position, and joint congruity of the first metatarsophalangeal joint (MTPJ).
We also gauged the depth of the medial osteophyte of the first MTPJ and evaluated joint congruity of the MTPJ, recorded the shape of the first metatarsal head, and the determined the tibial sesamoid position (TSP).
