Restoring Sesamoid Position in Scarf Osteotomy: A Learning Curve

Incomplete reduction of the sesamoid is a known risk factor for recurrence of the deformity after scarf osteotomy for correction of hallux valgus. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether a learning curve exists for successfully restoring the sesamoid position in scarf osteotomy. We reviewed 71 consecutive cases (71 feet) of scarf osteotomy performed on female patients during a 2.5-year period by the same surgeon
