Fifth Metatarsal Fractures.

Fifth metatarsal features are the most common fractures in the foot. They have a long history that has resulted in many classification systems and little consensus on appropriate treatment. Although there is some agreement among experts, there are also many questions yet to be answered. There is a general consensus that dancer's fractures and zone 1 fractures can generally be treated nonoperatively. There is much more debate about zone 2 and 3 fractures and appropriate treatment guidelines. The authors review the current literature and give the recommendation for treatment based on their experience in a community-based private practice.
