Combination of First Metatarsophalangeal Joint Arthrodesis and Proximal Correction for Severe Hallux Valgus Deformity
Foot & Ankle International, 05/08/2012
Rippstein PF et al. – The present results indicate that the combination of a more proximal procedure with a metatarso–phalangeal (MTP–1) arthrodesis in cases of hallux valgus with severely increased IMA 1–2 has a high correction capability and achieved normal HVAs as well as normal IMAs 1–2. This technique appeared to be safe and clinically successful.
