Abstract

Objective: This study aimed to determine, pre-correction, the potential change in the osteotomy-site bony contact surface area that would occur during standard metatarsal diaphyseal procedures with the Baran-Unal modification of Mau osteotomy and then to compare it, post-correction, with the actual osteotomy-site bony contact surface area changes for a standard degree of deformity correction.
