Modified Lapidus Arthrodesis With Crossed Screw Fixation: Early Weightbearing in 136 Patients

Modified Lapidus arthrodesis is a versatile and powerful procedure for correcting the hallux valgus deformity typically associated with significant metatarsus primus varus or increased first ray mobility. Traditionally, patients have remained non-weightbearing until the arthrodesis has consolidated. More recently, numerous studies have evaluated the outcomes of early postoperative weightbearing using a variety of fixation constructs.
