BACKGROUND Clawed hallux is defined by first metatarsophalangeal joint extension and first interphalangeal joint flexion; it can increase plantar pressures and ulceration risk. We investigated two corrective surgical techniques, the modified Jones and flexor hallucis longus tendon transfer. METHODS A finite element foot model was modified to generate(More)
The addition of cartilage elements in a finite element model prevents bone-on-bone articulation during simulation, thus providing more accurate information about joint kinematics. We present a semi-automated method for identifying joint articulation surfaces and creating volumetric articular cartilage elements based on patient-specific bone information. The(More)
