Sliding oblique versus segmental resection osteotomies for lesser metatarsophalangeal joint pathology.

BACKGROUND: Oblique shortening osteotomy (Weil) can address lesser MP pathology but can have a high rate of complications. The purpose of this study was to review the results of a modification of the Weil osteotomy, the segmental resection metatarsal osteotomy.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 2004 and 2006, 48 patients underwent the segmental resection osteotomy with a mean followup of 13 (range, 6 to 26) months. All the patients were evaluated with the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) forefoot score and a questionnaire addressing distances they were able to walk, work limitations, sporting activity, and overall satisfaction.

RESULTS: The postoperative AOFAS forefoot score was an average of 87.6 (range, 59 to 100; SD, 10.97) and the overall satisfaction rate was 85.4%. The complication rate was 18.8% for transfer metatarsalgia, 27.1% for floating toes, 35.4% for toe weakness, 14.6% for infection, and 10.4% for wound healing problems.

CONCLUSIONS: Despite the complications, the patients who underwent segmental osteotomy were satisfied with the outcome for lesser MTP joint pain and deformity. This is a preliminary study with significant refinement of the operative method as detailed in the surgical technique section. Further followup will elucidate whether additional changes are necessary in the surgical technique.
