Akin Osteotomy

An Akin osteotomy is a medial closing wedge osteotomy of the proximal phalanx of the great toe. It is used to correct hallux valgus interphalangeus. The Akin osteotomy is usually a component of a primary procedure in which a hallux valgus deformity is corrected. The osteotomy site is fixed with a DynaNite™ Nitinol staple, low-profile QuickFix™ cannulated screw, QuickFix Staples, or Plaple® fixation system.
