Podiatry – Hammertoe Correction Trends
In recent years, there has been a move away from the percutaneous K-wire to other forms of fixation for digital correction in foot surgery. The biggest concerns patients have about externally protruding K-wires are anxiety over the removal of the K-wire in the office and the accidental “trauma” within their home. The alternatives include various implants (that would offer long-term internal stabilization of the corrected deformity), as well as absorbable pins and cannulated screws. Read article “Current and Emerging Trends in Hammertoe Corrective Surgery“, February 2012, Podiatry Today.
