A technique for isolated arthrodesis of the second metatarsocuneiform joint.

Arthrodesis for primary osteoarthrosis of the second metatarsocuneiform joint has received little attention in the literature when compared to salvage of posttraumatic osteoarthrosis after Lisfranc fracture dislocation. The use of screw or plate fixation is commonly advocated for such in situ arthrodesis, and the use of trephine/dowel plugs has also been described. The authors present an alternate approach for addressing primary osteoarthrosis of the second metatarsocuneiform joint with the use of Kirschner wires fashioned into staples with cancellous bone graft interposition.
