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 muscle overpulls, including extensor hallucis longus, flexor hallucis longus and peroneus longus. Both corrective procedures were simulated… CONTINUE READING
