metatarsal osteotomy

metatarsal osteotomy

surgical metatarsal realignment, by:
  • dorsal wedge excision, at distal one-third of metatarsal, to decrease sagittal-plane angle of declination, and reduce effects of body weight and ground reaction forces on soft tissues overlying plantar aspect of metatarsal head, e.g. to prevent focal plantar hyperkeratosis formation

  • excision of a section of metatarsal neck, with dorsal head displacement, and resultant overall reduction in metatarsal length, to correct hammer or claw deformity of associated toe
