Case Study
The article presents two case studies related to percutaneous reduction treatment for interphalangeal joint dislocation of the great toe. The first case involved an 18-year old man who sustained a hyperextension injury to the interphalangeal joint of his left foot's great toe. The second case concerned a 34-year old male motorcyclist whose left great toe also suffered a hyperextension injury. It concludes that percutaneous reduction is an alternative treatment for the injury.
