Wilson's oblique osteotomy has the advantages of simplicity, stability of displacement of the metatarsal head without need for internal fixation, broad osteotomy surfaces which reduce the risks of non‐union, and a large metatarsal head fragment, minimizing the chances of avascular necrosis.

Metatarsal Fracture Fixation (Open Reduction and Internal Fixation) This procedure is used to correct a fracture of one or more of the long bones of the foot. During this procedure, the surgeon stabilizes the bones with hardware to allow the bones to heal properly.

Proper alignment of the metatarsal heads is a critical goal in restoring the pathomechanics of the forefoot. On the AP view, a normal curved “cascade” (Lelièvre’s parabola) appearance, symmetric with the other foot, is mandatory.

See illustration. This ensures that the normal length of the metatarsal. The Jones fracture is well known for poor healing with immobilization, even if there is no displacement, making surgery an appropriate initial option.

Surgical description Fifth metatarsal open reduction internal fixation is a surgical procedure utilized to treat a patient with a fifth metatarsal fracture. When a fifth metatarsal ORIF is performed, the patient is prepped and draped in the appropriate sterile fashion.

The Internal Fixation Workbooks give step-by-step instructions for reviewing the applied principles of internal fixation. An excellent resource, the text covers: instrumentation; screw specifications; lag screw fundamentals; fixation in first metatarsal osteotomies, oblique osteotomies and fractures; arthrodesis techniques; trauma of the.

The presented internal fixation F.E.R.I. technique is indicated in acute proximal fractures, stress fractures or non-union of metatarsal 5 (Zone 2–3 by Lawrence and Botte) and it resulted feasible and stable during manual stress test.

The authors intend to study this technique in the clinical setting in the near future. This is the first compendium of principles of using locking compression plates in fracture management.

With more than cases from world-leading surgeons, including the inventors of the technique, this book will guide orthopedic trauma surgeons, general orthopedists, and residents through applications of the internal fixator technique.

One of the most common complications following distal metatarsal osteotomies is recurrence of the deformity, a direct consequence of inappropriate selection of the patient, incorrect surgical technique, and underestimated healing time of the osteotomy.

open reduction and internal fixation surgery. In such a case they are often introduced using the “antegrade-re- trograde” technique. In this technique the KW is intro- duced into the distal metatarsal shaft and/or neck through the fracture, out of the metatarsal head (usually through- out the sole of the foot).

The KW is then grabbed by the. A variety of management techniques have been reported in the literature. The aim of this retrospective case series was to describe the clinical presentation and evaluate the efficacy of bioabsorbable polylactic acid screws in internal fixation of proximal fractures of the.

Traditionally, distal metatarsal osteotomies have been employed in the treatment of mild deformities, with proximal osteotomies being reserved for more severe presentations. The Scarf osteotomy without internal fixation allows large translations which can successfully correct severe hallux valgus deformities, without limitations related to.

METHODS: Between June 1,and Janu13 patients who had comminuted fracture or nonunion of fracture of the proximal fifth metatarsal bone underwent plate fixation.

Study patients were followed up for a mean of days (range, days). Fracture-dislocations of the tarsometatarsal (Lisfranc) joints are frequently overlooked or misdiagnosed at initial presentation.

This is a comparative cohort study over a period of five years comparing primary open reduction and internal fixation in 22 patients (23 feet) with secondary corrective arthrodesis in 22 patients (22 feet) who presented with painful malunion at a mean of 22 months.The incidence of metatarsal fractures is not precisely known.

Malposition might cause future metatarsalgia, mid-foot pain and discomfort, which may dictate an on-going need for in-shoe orthosis, shoe modification and, occasionally, operative correction. To minimize and prevent these problems, we describe a simple technique for reduction and fixation of metatarsal fractures by Kirschner wires.The goals for hand therapy following a metacarpal or phalanx open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) is to regain full range of motion, decrease pain, progress to strengthening activities and return to functional activities.

WEEKS Remain in post-operative hand splint. Perform gentle range of motion activities of the fingers.
