The aim of this study was to compare a distal subcapital oblique fifth metatarsal with a distal chevron osteotomy for correction of bunionette deformity. Materials and methods. Twenty cadaveric feet were randomly assigned to undergo either a subcapital oblique or chevron osteotomy of the distal fifth metatarsal. Radiographic measurements, including 4-5 intermetatarsal angle (IMA), fifth metatarsophalangeal angle (5-MPA) and foot width, were compared between the 2 groups. Results. Foot width and 5-MPA was significantly decreased in both groups with no difference between the groups. The 4-5 IMA was not significantly altered in either group. Conclusion. Decrease in foot width and 5-MPA was similarly achieved with either distal chevron or subcapital oblique osteotomy of the fifth metatarsal in normal cadaveric specimens. No significant difference was found between the 2 techniques in any of the radiographic parameters measured.
