Abstract

Metatarsalgia is one of the most common reasons for orthopedic surgery consultations. Open surgery using Weil osteotomy techniques is widely accepted to treat metatarsalgia when orthopedic management fails. However, the presence of the osteosynthesis screw and the distal position of the osteotomy significantly complicates salvage procedures. We present a series of patients in whom persistent postoperative metatarsalgia was resolved by percutaneous osteotomies.
