Results presented here showed female athletes who underwent fasciotomy for exertional compartment syndrome may have a greater likelihood of postoperative recovery and greater symptom resolution compared with male athletes.
First metatarsophalangeal joint arthrodesis/fusion: a systematic review of modern fixation techniques
First metatarsophalangeal joint arthrodesis is commonly performed for symptomatic end-stage hallux rigidus. It has been postulated to produce good results in the literature. Various fixation techniques offer differences in union rates, complications and functional outcomes, stirring debates about which produces the best outcomes for patients. Therefore, this review aims to synthesise and compare the outcomes of modern fixation techniques used for first metatarsophalangeal joint (FMPJ) arthrodesis.
The proximal phalanx is the phalanx (toe bone) closest to the leg. The image shows a diagram of where these bones lie in the foot—the midpoint of the proximal phalanges being where to the toes branch off from the main body of the foot.
Published results showed in-office needle arthroscopy for treatment of anterior ankle impingement may reduce pain and yield low complication rates and excellent patient-reported outcomes.
Common toe problems, including bunions, tailor's bunion (or bunionette), hammertoes, and hallux limitus, can be caused by abnormal foot anatomy and function as well as too-small footwear.
