Description

Minimal incision surgical principals rely on the soft tissue envelope to maintain stability that is supplemented by a variety of clinically recommended fixation methods. The extended distal first metatarsal osteotomy has renewed interest because of the ability to laterally translate, angulate, and rotate the metatarsal head in proper alignment with the sesamoids to a neutral alignment. The soft tissue envelope of capsule, ligaments, and tendons will re-align once the bone deformity is corrected. The periosteum is maintained to provide a biologic scaffold for new bone formation and must be minimally disrupted during the intervention.
