Fig. 5. Different options of the shortening of the first metatarsal bone during lateral translation of the plantar head fragment to correct the hallux valgus deformity, depends on the necessity of the length of the shortening. (A) Minimal shortening (1~2mm). (B) Shortening by making the angle of the transverse cut more acute and proximal ward (3~4 mm). (C) Shortening by segmental resection of both ends of the fragments (more than 5 mm).
