SURGICAL TREATMENT OF OVERLAPPING TOES

Irkutsk Scientific Center of Surgery and Traumatology, Irkutsk,
The Russian Federation

The article presents a clinical case of successful surgical treatment of the female patient with the combination of two types of toe deformities – hallux valgus and 2nd varus hammer toe (overlapping toes). At the examination of the patient we assessed the character and the degree of severity of toe deformity, made necessary calculations and chose optimal surgical methods of treatment. Using original method of surgical treatment allowed us correcting hallux valgus and using Helal method contributed to the correction of 2nd varus hammer toe. This clinical case shows the importance of preoperative planning including precise preliminary calculations and determination of some parameters which are necessary for the correction of toe deformities. Preoperative calculation of such parameters as length of necessary shortening and value of necessary lateral shift of the instep bone fragment makes it possible to perform precise marking of the lines on the instep bone fragment which helps restoring its anatomy and statodynamic function without any recurrence in the postoperative period.

Keywords: hallux valgus, hammer toe syndrome, foot deformity, toe, overlapping toes, parameters of necessary shortening and shift
