Modified Lapidus Procedure with Joint Compression, Meticulous Surface Preparation, and Shear-Strain-Relieved Bone Graft Yields Low Nonunion Rate

Abstract

The modified Lapidus procedure is widely used to correct hallux valgus but has been reported with high nonunion rates. In this study, we retrospectively reviewed the nonunion rate of the modified Lapidus procedure performed with rigid cross screw fixation, meticulous joint preparation, and shear-strain-relieved calcaneal bone graft. Does the performance of… (More)
