The views expressed herein are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect those of ACFAS Why is this Important? Hallux valgus surgery is one of the most common procedures performed by foot and ankle surgeons, but patient satisfaction is lower than what we would expect There is a paucity of research that examines what could potentially contribute to an unfavorable outcome Radiographic angles and relationships have some explanatory value, but it has been made clear that patient perception of a good outcome is multi-factorial and complex Statement of Purpose The purpose of this study is to identify whether (and to what
extent) our patients biopsychosocial attributes influence early patient reported outcomes following hallux valgus surgery Methods We prospectively studied 40 consecutive adult subjects undergoing hallux valgus surgery All subjects underwent a Scarf bunionectomy or a Scarf in combination with an Akin osteotomy, all with lateral soft tissue release Methods Primary Predictor Variable: Biopsychosocial traits were assessed using the Brief Battery for Health Improvement 2 (BBHI 2) survey, which has strong psychometric properties and covers multiple physical and psychosocial functioning domains that are known to be predictive of surgical outcome1.
1 Bruns et al . J Clin Psychol Med Settings 2009 Methods Primary Outcome Measure: Patient reported outcomes were assessed at baseline and 3 month follow up using the Foot and Ankle Outcome Score (FAOS) survey, which has been validated for use in HVS.1 This survey has five domains including symptoms, stiffness, pain, function/daily living, and function/sports and recreation 1 Chen et al. Foot Ankle Int 2012 Methods Radiographs were obtained pre and 3 months post-operatively. Eleven
biomechanical angles/measurements were assessed at both time intervals Statistical Analysis: A series of multiple regression analyses were conducted to examine associations between psychological functioning (6 BBHI 2 domains) and surgical outcomes (5 FAOS domains) P-values less than 0.05 were considered statistically significant Surgical Technique A sesamoidal release with a McGlamry elevator An osteotomy guide was used 2 headless screws were used for fixation Capsulorrhaphy was routinely performed An oblique Akin was performed when applicable

Conclusion As with previous studies, 1,2 we have found that radiographic variables are not particularly useful in predicting early patient reported outcomes following hallux valgus surgery. Patients who are more careful/concerned may tend to report earlier recovery after bunion surgery than those who display high levels of confidence/composure. 1 Thordarson et al.
