The New Zealand Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (NZOFAS) is very pleased and honoured to be formally accorded full membership of the IFFAS as part of the new Fifth Chapter, the Southern Federation of Foot and Ankle Societies (SFFAS).
We are so happy to formally welcome our friends from the fifth federation as members in IFFAS. We encourage everyone to participate with new ideas to improve our medical education and scientific interaction.
Hyperpronation of the first metatarsal in hallux valgus (HV) is poorly understood by conventional weightbearing radiography. We aimed to evaluate this parameter using weightbearing computed tomography (WBCT) and to understand its association with other standard measurements.
After several PROMs publication in different languages, we wanted to contribute to the Spanish speaking countries with a valuable tool for patient evaluation and comparison with the published literature.
The regional capital is Valparaiso, which is one of the main ports in the Pacific and whose historic center was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2003, known for its bohemian atmosphere and active social life.
Meanwhile we continue organizing IFFAS meeting in Viña del Mar, Chile taking all necessary precaution to keep everyone safe and able to enjoy one of the first big face to face meeting since the beginning of Covid.
