A Practical Correction of Great Toe Claw Deformity – Corrected Proof

Abstract: Ischemic contracture of the leg causing clawing of the toes is a known complication of compartment syndrome of the leg. Although a substantial amount of published data are available on the prevention and acute management of compartment syndrome, a relative paucity of data has been published on the optimal management of the resultant claw toe deformity. In the present case report, the operative management of a patient with left great toe clawing secondary to ischemia is described.
