77 Yo Male with “Crooked Toe”

FOOT & ANKLE SURGERY PHOTOS AND VIDEOS

This 77 yo gentleman whom still works full time finally decided to have his “crooked toe” fixed.

Due to some osteopenia and severe deformity we felt the Extremity Medical post device was the perfect construct to resist the forces present. Z-lengthening of the EHL tendon was necessary.

The post device allows excellent compression, both dorsal and plantar. Despite the osteopenic bone we allowed this patient to bear weight immediately. He did well, and developed nice union by 10wk x-ray. He was back in work boots after 8 wk visit, which of course was his primary concern.
