Fig. 2. (A) Lowering during scarf osteotomy in group 1. The plantar head fragment was lowered a maximum of 7 mm with the longitudinal cut angle of 20°. Too much lowering occasionally caused metatarsalgia of the first metatarsophalangeal joint. (B) Lowering during scarf osteotomy in group 2. The plantar head fragment was lowered a maximum of only 5 mm, because of reduced longitudinal cut angle about 10° to prevent too much lowering.
