Angular deviations of the fifth toe surgical correction and a review
Pisani P. C.
A correct clinical analysis of the angular deformities of the fifth toe is important to the successful outcome of surgery. This is different for the two distinct nosological entities: varus fifth toe and fifth metatarsal toe which can be identified by their unique etiological, anatomic, and pathological and clinical characteristics. The first deformity is normally treated using corrective surgery of the soft tissues, whereas the second requires osteotomy of the fifth metatarsal bone. Although more rare, corrective surgery is sometimes required for recurrent angular deviations of the fifth toe or secondary to other foot pathologies which may require associated techniques involving the soft tissues and bone. The authors report the results of their personal experience of 27 patients undergoing surgery and the relative techniques used.
