Intraoperative Simulated Weightbearing Lateral Foot Imaging: The Clinical Utility and Ability to Predict Sagittal Plane Position of the First Ray in…

The sagittal plane relationship of the first to second ray is a primary determinant of proper alignment in Lapidus midfoot fusion as assessed both clinically and on postoperative weightbearing lateral radiographs. The traditional approach to intraoperative fluoroscopic imaging allows for accurate assessment of fixation placement and intermetatarsal angle correction but only a crude evaluation of final sagittal plane alignment
