First MTP Fusion with Metatarsal Head Bone Loss
Instability and bone loss of the first metatarsal phalangeal joint is a common pathology in foot and ankle surgery. To restore joint stability, a revision dowel can be implanted into the proximal phalanx and the first metatarsal. After that, the implant of choice can be placed overtop of the dowel.
Shear Blocking Technique for Difficult Fusions: Calcaneocuboid Joint
