The most common procedures for the big toe are corrective osteotomies of the first metatarsal and arthrodesis.
The arthroscope through manoeuvres gives a complete picture of the inside of the joint, without surgical incisions.
The goal of surgery is to free the involved part of the joint by correcting the misalignment of the tibia and maintain the plane of the joint perpendicular to the mechanical axis of the foot.
The diagnosis of flatfoot is easy and can be based on an overview of the elimination of the foot arch in an upright position.
