Abstract

Motion of the metatarsophalangeal joints is essential for the normal gait. Therefore it is important to recover the motion of normal joint in the treatment of stiffness of the metatarsophalangeal joints. However, there have been no report about the treatment of stiffness of the four lateral lesser metatarsophalangeal joints yet. We report an experience that good clinical and radiographic results were obtained after resection arthroplasty for the post-traumatic stiffness of the four lateral lesser metatarsophalangeal joints.
