This paper discusses the normal adult values of the fibular deviation of the distal phalanx of the great toe. Occurrence of this deviation at birth is a normal finding and an increase can be expected during periods of active growth within the foot. This developmental increase is dependent upon transverse plane stability at the metatarsophalangeal joint. Preoperative procedures and postoperative reviews are discussed.
