Intraoperative Evaluation of Medial Intercuneiform Instability After Lapidus Arthrodesis: Intercuneiform Hook Test

The presence of intercuneiform instability is not routinely inspected within the overall surgical management of hallux valgus and has therefore been underreported as a potential cause of recurrence. We sought to demonstrate the incidence of this unique type of proximal instability to state its potential importance in the correction and definitive management of hallux valgus in patients with moderate to severe intermetatarsal angles with superimposed hypermobility
