    • Bunionnette 0 small
      • A bunionette is also known as a Tailor’s Bunion.  It is a painful lateral bony prominence of the 5th metatarsal head resulting in a widened forefoot.  A bunionette can be caused by a large 5th metatarsal head (Type I), lateral bowing of the 5th metatarsal shaft (Type II), or an increase in the 4th and 5th intermetatarsal space …
    • Complete plantar plate repair system 0 small
      • The Complete Plantar Plate Repair System (CPR™) treats plantar plate tears and attenuation from a dorsal incision. This single, self-contained kit is available to provide solutions for this challenging-to-treat area of the foot. The CPR Micro SutureLasso™ and Mini Scorpion™ DX devices provide suture passing options in the …
    • Hammertoe clawtoe 0 small
      • Hammer toe is a flexible or rigid flexion deformity of the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint of the lesser toe. A similar deformity that also involves the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joint is known as claw toe. These deformities result from an imbalance in the dynamic flexion and extension forces that cross the lesser MTP, PIP, and (in the …
    • Metatarsal shortening osteotomy 0 small
      • A long lesser metatarsal can lead to common toe problems. A metatarsal shortening osteotomy can help prevent future complications, including plantar plate tears leading to crossover toe deformities, as well as hammer toes and claw toes. Once these complications have occurred, the surgeon may choose a metatarsal shortening osteotomy to decompress …
    • Plantar plate repair 0 small
      • Using the CPR™ system, surgeons now have the option to repair the plantar plate from a dorsal approach. Following a Weil osteotomy to recess the capital fragment up to 1 cm under the metatarsal, the plantar plate is accessed using a small joint distractor clamp over K-wires. The surgeon can then use the novel Mini Scorpion™ DX suture …
    • Plantar plate tears 0 small
      • The plantar plate is made of a 2 - 5 mm thick layer of connective tissue originating on the plantar aspect of the distal metatarsals and inserting on the plantar base of the proximal phalanx.  This stout structure serves as the main stabilizer supporting the MTP joints.  Through chronic microtrauma or dynamic imbalance, this tissue can …
