49) Hallux rigitus, or limitation of dorsiflexion of the great toe, also pre disposes to ulceration, (50) since the toe-off phase of gait requires 450 of metatarsophalangeal joint

1) In the feet, the first metatarsophalangeal joint

The anatomical shape of the MOVEMENT Hemi Great Toe implants and the cannulated instrumentation allow for better remodeling of the joints' surfaces compared to other commercially available implants as well as a streamlined approach to first metatarsophalangeal joint
arthroplasty," said Dr.
Excision arthroplasty is normally undertaken in elderly or sedentary patients, given the loss of flexion strength of the first metatarsophalangeal joint
