Example text

The foot is immobilized in a cast, and weightbearing is limited to a minimal amount needed for balance during ambulation. 5 weeks, and the foot is placed into a cast or a cast boot. If radiographs taken at 8 weeks show bony union, weightbearing is increased as tolerated, and the foot is gently phased into a normal shoe. Walking in a pool is an excellent form of early rehabilitation. Occasionally, the intermetatarsal screw is prominent and symptomatic. This screw may be removed in the office after 3–6 months using a local anesthetic.

Shear strain-relieved bone graft must be added to encourage union. A dorsal skin incision is made over the first ray to expose the tarsometatarsal joint without jeopardizing the anterior tibial tendon. The long extensor is held medial and the extensor brevis is kept lateral during dorsal exposure of the proximal first metatarsal. The incision can be extended proximally for fusion of the medial intercuneiform joint (needed in approximately 10% of cases) and is routinely extended distally for soft-tissue procedures at the lateral first MTP joint.

A full-thickness dorsal and plantar flap is created along the capsular plane. Care is taken to avoid the dorsal and plantar cutaneous nerves. A vertical incision is made 2–3 mm proximal to the base of the proximal phalanx, using a no. 11 blade. A second incision is then made parallel to the first, anywhere from 3 mm to 8 mm more proximal, depending upon the size of the deformity (Figure 5). These two parallel cuts are connected by an inverted V on the dorsomedial aspect of the metatarsophalangeal joint and plantarward by a V-shaped incision through the abductor hallucis tendon [DuVries 1959].
