PROSPECT recently published a guideline concerning Hallux Valgus repair. This ESRA’s working group, PROSPECT, developed this systematic review with the objective of assessing the available literature on pain management after hallux valgus repair, evaluating postoperative pain outcomes (pain scores and analgesic requirements) as the primary outcome, other recovery outcomes including adverse effects and the limitations of the available data. Ultimately, recommendations for pain management after hallux valgus repair surgery were created. Hallux valgus repair is a very common procedure that might be performed as inpatient or outpatient basis, associated with moderate to severe pain. You can find it here.1
