New surgical video: MTP-1 Joint Arthrodesis
Hallux valgus with arthritis and hallux rigidus are two of the most common conditions that require first metatarsophalangeal (MTP-1) joint arthrodesis. Arthrodesis of MTP-1 can reliably reduce pain related to hallux rigidus and improve foot function to allow a certain level of activity. With the partially threaded ActivaScrew™ Cannulated LAG, you get an excellent compression in MTP-1 fusion supported by patented Auto-Compression™ with the advantages of the bone replacing the implant after healing.
In this operation, Dr. Nikke Partio shows how to use two bioabsorbable ActivaScrew™ Cannulated LAG screws for MTP-1 arthrodesis.
For more information about the MTP-1 technique from the Indications section.
