Metatarsocuneiform Joint Resection Arthroplasty for Atraumatic Osteoarthrosis: An Alternative to Arthrodesis

Abstract: The reported operative treatment of primary osteoarthrosis of the metatarsocuneiform joint has focused primarily on methods of arthrodesis. Arthrodesis of the metatarsocuneiform joint can result in complications in the older or obese patient who is unable to tolerate non-weightbearing. Age and health status can also increase the rate of nonunion and venous thromboembolism, especially in the immobile patient
