BACKGROUND For the treatment of hallux valgus commonly distal metatarsal osteotomies are performed. Persistent problems due to the hardware and the necessity of hardware removal has led to the development of absorbable implants. To overcome the limitations of formerly used materials for biodegradable implants, recently magnesium has been introduced as a novel implant material. This is the first study showing mid-term clinical and radiological (MRI) data after using magnesium implants for… CONTINUE READING
