Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A review of the literature attests to a place for arthrodesis of the metatarsophalangeal joint of the great toe in the management of hallux valgus and rigidus. The predictability and consistency of the result of arthrodesis is noted with good results in approximately 90% of cases. The functional excellence and durability of such a result are impressive. The procedure is particularly indicated in patients with hallux rigidus and hallux valgus associated with metatarsalgia. There are a number of operative techniques, but the cone arthrodesis procedure described by Wilson is probably nearest to the ideal.
