Simultaneous dislocation of the first cuneometatarsal joint and metatarsophalangeal joint is a rare injury. The case of a 22-year-old man is reported, but no previous cases have been reported in the literature. The treatment by closed reduction and pinning was very classical. Occasionally the reducibility of the metatarsophalangeal joint may be made more(More)
The authors describe an approach to the calcaneus: the incision follows the Achilles tendon and curves anteriorly between the lateral and plantar skin of the foot. The subtalar joint is opened using a Müller distractor, with one pin in the tibia and the other in the calcaneus. Sixty-one crush fractures of the thalamus were treated using this approach.

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Morton's neuroma is a frequent cause of metatarsalgia. Its diagnosis is clinical but progress in medical imaging: ultrasound, evoked potentials and above all MRI allows an improvement of para-clinical diagnosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS 48 neuromas were treated surgically between 1979 and 1990. That represents 46 feet in 43 patients.(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY 57 subtalar arthrodesis for sequelae of calcaneal fractures were reviewed with a minimum follow up of 6 years 11 months. MATERIAL AND METHODS Bone resection and interposition of bone grafts, stabilized by screws were used in 36 cases. Iliac crest grafts were used in 20 cases, cryopreserved grafts 15 times and local graft taken on the(More)
The Sixtine prosthesis is a metallic, hemiconical, flat concave, metatarsophalangeal interposition prosthesis, with a rim on the phalangeal end, with a lateral capsular fixation or a temporary fixation by axial pinning. Seventy-four cases using a Sixtine prosthesis were reviewed with a minimum follow-up of 2 years. The range of motion was improved (+12.4(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY 49 cases of hallux-valgus were treated by a shortening of the phalanx with impaction according to the technic described by Regnauld, associated with a plasty of the adductor. Patients were evaluated with a follow-up greater than 5 years. MATERIAL AND METHODS 32 female and 5 male patients were treated. 63 per cent patients were between(More)
