UNLABELLED: A 1-piece memory Nitinol intramedullary fixation device (Smart Toe; Stryker Corporation, Kalamazoo, MI) was used for proximal interphalangeal joint arthrodesis for correction of painful hammertoes in digits 2, 3, and 4. Sixty-five implants were placed in 35 patients. The mean age of our patients was 62.2 years (range = 27-82; standard deviation = 12.5). Mean follow-up time was 27 months (range = 12-40 months; standard deviation = 7). Overall, a 93.8% fusion rate was noted...

BACKGROUND: We used finite element analysis to evaluate three techniques for the correction of hammertoe and claw toe deformities: flexor digitorum longus tendon transfer (FDLT), flexor digitorum brevis tendon transfer (FDBT), and proximal interphalangeal joint arthrodesis (PIPJA). METHODS: We performed a finite element analysis of FDLT and FDBT compared with PIPJA of the second toe using multislice computed tomography and 93 tomographic images of the foot obtained in a healthy 36-year-old man...

In cases of painful complex hammertoe deformity, there is no single approach that can be used in all circumstances. If conservative care fails, surgical management may include interphalangeal joint arthroplasty, arthrodesis, and/or plantar plate repair. The best and most pragmatic surgical plan must be patient-centered, taking the age, activity level, expectations of the patient, and precise etiology of the hammertoe deformity into account.

Hammertoes are common deformities that are often surgically treated using arthrodesis or arthroplasty of the proximal interphalangeal joint with percutaneous, temporary Kirschner wire fixation. However, percutaneous Kirschner wire fixation is associated with potential complications, including wire migration, breakage, and pin tract infection. Furthermore, the complications of pseudoarthrosis and nonunion are seen using this technique owing to a lack of rotational control of the Kirschner wire. Another drawback of this implant is the need for wire removal and the associated patient anxiety with this in-office procedure...

BACKGROUND: Fixed flexion deformity of the proximal interphalangeal joint with or without hyperextension of the metatarsaophalangeal joint, hammertoe, is one of the most common foot deformities. Many surgical options have been recommended including the use of a more flexible PDS Orthosorb absorbable pin for fixation. The authors, using the PDS pin technique, reported some coronal angulations with painful soft corns requiring surgical correction. A new proximal interphalangeal joint arthrodesis procedure for hammer toe deformities utilizing a stiffer poly L-lactate 2-mm absorbable pin for internal fixation is presented...

Hammertoe and clawtoe deformities are common forefoot problems. The deformity exists owing to the underlying pathoanatomy. Hallux valgus, longer metatarsals, and intrinsic imbalance are the most common etiologies. Understanding the cause of the deformity is important to be able to successfully treat the condition, whether nonoperative or with operative intervention. When nonoperative measures fail, PIP correction is best obtained through arthroplasty or arthrodesis. The key to successful PIP correction is obtaining a well-aligned toe and reducing pain as demonstrated by Coughlin and Mann...

Complex hammer digit deformity is commonly associated with instability of the metatarsophalangeal joint. Restoring joint stability is critical for digit alignment and function and can be challenging and unpredictable. Lesser metatarsophalangeal joint fusion might be an alternative treatment to the current soft tissue balancing, repair, and extra-articular osseous procedures used to treat joint instability. The present study was a retrospective chart and radiographic review of the pooled outcomes of 31 consecutive lesser metatarsophalangeal joint fusion procedures performed by 3 independent surgeons from May 2004 to September 2009...

BACKGROUND: Lesser toe deformities are frequent and bothersome conditions. Many options exist for the treatment of hammertoes and clawtoes. The purpose of this study was to review our experience with the use of an intramedullary fusion device. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An IRB approved retrospective review was performed to identify 38 toes in 27 patients treated with the StayFuse (Nexa Orthopaedics) device with a mean followup of 31 months. The indications for surgery were primary deformity in 12 toes and recurrent deformities in 26 toes...

Interphalangeal joint arthrodesis is a common procedure to correct fixed or semifixed lesser toe contracture. The authors present a simple modification to end-to-end interphalangeal joint arthrodesis that increases surface area and enhances construct stability. The technique is most commonly used for the proximal interphalangeal joint and may be combined with any number of fixation techniques.

UNLABELLED: Iatrogenic flail toe is a complication of hammertoe surgery that occurs when an overaggressive resection of the proximal phalanx occurs. This can cause both functional and cosmetic concerns for the patient. We present a case report of the correction of a flail second toe in a patient with Raynaud's disease. The correction was achieved by means of gradual soft tissue lengthening with external fixation and an interposition autologous bone graft digital arthrodesis. After 5 months, this 2-stage procedure lengthened, stabilized, and restored the function of the toe...

A wide range of options is available to surgeons for fixation of the proximal interphalangeal joint when arthrodesis is undertaken for repair of the hammertoe deformity. In this technical report, we describe the use of an intraosseous loop of stainless-steel wire for permanent stabilization of the interface between the proximal and middle phalanges during fusion of the interphalangeal joint.

BACKGROUND: Fixed flexion deformity of the proximal interphalangeal joint with or without hyperextension of the metatarsophalangeal joint is one of the most common foot deformities. Many operative options have been recommended. Complaints after operative procedures include a too straight toe, floating toe, painful toe recurvatum, mallet toe, pin track infection, broken hardware, and the necessity of removing hardware. A proximal interphalangeal joint arthrodesis for hammertoe deformity using a 2-mm absorbable pin for internal fixation is described...

BACKGROUND: The main bony procedures used in the treatment of second hammertoe are excisional arthroplasty and arthrodesis of the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint. While a number of studies have reported the outcomes after PIP joint arthrodesis, there are few reports of the outcome of excisional arthroplasty of the PIP joint for the correction of second hammertoes. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term outcome of PIP joint excisional arthroplasty. METHODS: Seventy-five patients (100 toes) who had excisional arthroplasty of the PIP joint for the correction of second hammertoe were reviewed at an average followup of 44 months...

Twenty-four patients (37 feet, 51 toes) affected by hammertoe deformity of the lesser toes and treated surgically by arthrodesis of the proximal interphalangeal joint, stabilized with an intramedullary titanium cannulated screw, were reviewed 1-4 years after the operation. At follow-up, the arthrodesis was fused in 48 toes; three toes showed an asymptomatic radiographic nonunion, and in one of them the screw was broken. In seven toes, the cannulated screw was removed because of persistent pain at the tip of the toe where the head of the screw was located...

The author reports on second metatarsophalangeal joint arthrodesis for the severe crossover hammertoe deformity. Eleven patients underwent an arthrodesis of the second metatarsophalangeal joint with a.062 Kirschner wire intramedullary fixation and a dorsal small bone staple and resection of the proximal phalangeal head of the second digit. Outcomes were retrospectively reviewed at average follow-up time of 19 months. A subjective patient satisfaction survey along with a clinical and radiographic evaluation was undertaken in the postoperative period...

REVIEW
J K Harmonson, L B Harkless
Hammer toes, claw toes, and mallet toes are some of the most common problems a podiatrist encounters. Patients with these deformities often experience significant pain and desire treatment of the deformed toe. This article provides a review of the literature, identifies the various methods of surgical treatment, and evaluates the outcomes of these procedures.
