PMID:  2046014     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The authors describe a new approach to Austin bunionectomy fixation using the 3M Staplizer. Twenty cases are examined retrospectively for various postoperative results. The Staplizer technique is compared and contrasted to other modes of fixation that are described in the literature. The authors suggest that internal fixation with the Staplizer provides decreased risk of infection, early ambulation, high patient acceptance, and fewer complications. A detailed description of the technique used to insert the staples is presented, and mechanical analysis of the osteotomy and optimal staple position are discussed.
