    First MTF (metatarsophalangeal) arthrodesis is a frequent procedure for hallux rigidus (first MTF arthrosis) or hallux valgus (bunion) in the presence of arthrosis. We present the clinical benefits and foot biomechanics after first MTF arthrodesis for revision hallux valgus surgery. For this...

    The article provides an overview of the surgical correction of moderate and severe Hallux valgus. Complications of the disease can be avoided by selecting a procedure that provides adequate correction of the intermetatarsal angle and ensuring proper balancing of the first metatarsophalangeal...

    Background: Surgical treatment of hallux rigidus has usually consisted of cheilectomy for mild to moderate disease and arthrodesis for more advanced disease. The reported failure rate for cheilectomy alone in patients with advanced disease is approximately 37.5%. We reported our results with the...

    Background: Hallux rigidus is a common problem characterized by localized osteoarthritis and limited range of motion of the hallux. First metatarsophalangeal joint arthrodesis has been the accepted procedure for the treatment of late-stage disease. Despite the success of arthrodesis, some...

    The high loosening rate of the Moje prosthesis in the treatment of hallux rigidus caused disappointing medium term results. Arthrodesis using an iliac crest bone graft is the standard salvage procedure. We present short-term results after one-stage revision of the metatarsophalangeal joint using...

    Background: Arthrodesis of the first metatarsophalangeal joint is indicated for severe osteoarthritis or as a revision of failed treatment for hallux valgus. The literature suggests that an optimum fused dorsiflexion angle is between 20° and 25° from the axis of the first metatarsal. The...

  • Hallux rigidus. Götz, J.; Grifka, J.; Handel, M. // Der Orthopäde;Sep2011, Vol. 40 Issue 9, p819 

    Osteoarthritis of the first metatarsophalangeal joint is termed hallux rigidus. Clinical symptoms are expressed by a painful limitation of range of motion, finally leading to an eponymous total stiffness of the joint. Conservative treatment includes drug therapy, physical therapy and orthotic...
