The authors examined 10 patients who had arthrodesis at the first metatarsophalangeal joint and 10 patients who had Keller's arthroplasty operation. The EMED gait analysis was used to measure the pressure distribution over the sole of the foot during walking. Arthrodesis group had significantly increased maximum pressure in the first and third metatarsal regions. The Keller arthroplasty group had the lowest maximum pressure in the big toe but it was not significant.
