Dorsal wedge osteotomy of the proximal phalanx for hallux rigidus. Long-term results



Dorsal wedge osteotomy of the proximal phalanx for hallux rigidus. Long-term results



Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. British Volume 69(5): 835-837



Eight women had 10 toes treated for hallux rigidus by dorsal wedge osteotomy of the proximal phalanx and were reviewed after an average follow-up of 22 years. Five toes were symptom-free, four others did not restrict walking, and only one had required metatarsophalangeal fusion. We conclude that dorsal wedge osteotomy affords long-lasting benefits for hallux rigidus in the adolescent female.
