Case-Control Study: The Role of First Tarsometatarsal Joint Morphology and Instability in the Etiology of Hallux Valgus  

CurveBeam AI

Key Points: First tarsometatarsal joint (TMT1) hypermobility is associated with hallux valgus (HV) which is caused by TMT1 instability. Weight Bearing CT (WBCT) provides a clearer view of TMT1 morphology and instability by providing images of a patient under physiological load. The TMT1 is a crucial component of the medial column of the foot and plays a significant role in first-ray mechanics.
