An oblique proximal phalangeal osteotomy is introduced as an alternative to the Akin procedure for the treatment of hallux valgus. It consists of a single oblique osteotomy directed from proximal-dorsal to plantar-distal. A retrospective review of 32 patients who underwent 36 oblique proximal osteotomies is presented Figure 4-1 A and B, The phalangeal osteotomy is a very useful adjunct to correct a severely pronated hallux, as in this case, regardless of which osteotomy procedure is chosen for correction of the metatarsal deformity. The traditional use of the phalangeal osteotomy is to function as an adjunctive procedure for the correction of hallux valgus Angular deformity of the interphalangeal (IP) joint was corrected by an opening wedge osteotomy at the proximal phalangeal neck. A wedge bone from ablated thumb was grafted to correct the malalignment. IP joint was further stabilized by plication of the ulnar capsule 10.1055/b-0040-177462 47 Phalangeal OsteotomiesMark Snoddy and Philip E. Blazar Abstract This chapter is a review of phalangeal malunion and the methods for correction including malunion evaluation, treatment options, and tips regarding phalangeal osteotomies. Given the variety of surgical options, surgeons must preoperatively plan in advance regarding the location, type, and fixation of.
An additional proximal phalangeal osteotomy was performed in 11 of the patients whose hallux valgus persisted (HVA >10º). The American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) hallux score, the HVA and intermetatarsal angle (IMA) on radiographs, and the complication rate were assessed : A historical review of osteotomies of the proximal phalanx has been presented. The techniques have remained relatively unchanged since their introduction by O. F. Akin in 1925. This article describes a minimal incision osteotomy technique using a medial approach to the hallux and wedge-shaped burs. The results suggest that the procedure produces good clinical results and is highly accepted. Phalangeal osteotomy can be added routinely but should be combined if dorsiflexion is less than 70 degrees after cheilectomy. 5 Proper fixation of the phalangeal osteotomy will not interfere with weight-bearing and early motion. A Moberg osteotomy is a dorsal closing wedge osteotomy of the proximal phalanx of the great toe. It is used for hallux rigidus, grades 2 and 3, often in conjunction with a cheilectomy or other joint-sparing procedure. The osteotomy can be completed with an open or MIS approach, depending on surgeon preference Closing wedge osteotomy of the proximal phalanx for hallux rigidus was first proposed by Bonney and Macnab in 1952, and short-term results were reported by Kessel and Bonney in 1958.Closing wedge proximal phalanx osteotomy is, however, best known as the Moberg osteotomy since he popularized this technique ().The aim of the operation is to move the limited arc of motion at the affected joint to.
A proximal phalanx osteotomy is a useful adjunct to hallux valgus deformity correction. Instead of relying on a soft-tissue correction to maintain great toe position, one can dial in the correction with a bony correction of the proximal phalanx. This results in less long-term deformity recurrence and, after adequate bony consolidation, allows. Background: The Akin proximal phalangeal osteotomy is commonly used in conjunction with metatarsal osteotomies to treat hallux valgus. Multiple fixation methods including suture, wire, screw, and staple fixation have been described with proximal phalanx osteotomy, any method. 31 CPT 28298. 32 CPT 2829 . As a loss of joint space is 1 component of degenerative joint disease, it must be observed that the phalangeal osteotomy exacerbates that component First metatarsal phalangeal joint surgery may require a Chevron bunionectomy, first metatarsal joint effusion, or a Lapidus bunion ectomy. There is a procedure called an Akin osteotomy that is likely the choice procedure for hallux values interphalangeus surgery. Hallux Valgus Interphalangeus Fusion Surgery
Purpose. Rotational deformity of metacarpal and phalangeal fractures can jeopardize normal hand function and cause aesthetic problems for patients. We have found the Z-cut metacarpal osteotomy, initially described by Manktelow, to prove predictable and provide precise restoration of rotation and function.Therefore, we reviewed our experience with this technique 28309 Osteotomy, with or without lengthening, shortening or angular correction, metatarsal; multiple (eg, swanson type cavus foot procedure) 28310 Osteotomy, shortening, angular or rotational correction; proximal phalanx, first toe (separate procedure) 28312 Osteotomy, shortening, angular or rotational correction; other phalanges, any to Osteotomy for correction of deformity; phalanx of finger (26567) Osteoplasty for lengthening of metacarpal or phalanx (26568 One of the MIS procedures for LTD is the partial or incomplete osteotomy (IO) of the phalanges which consists of a unicortical osteotomy retaining an intact portion of the phalanx that may act as a fulcrum allowing the closure of the osteotomy
Phalangeal osteotomy. Limitation of ﬁrst MTP joint dor-siﬂexion in patients with hallux rigidus and the presence of an adequate range of plantarﬂexion may be addressed through phalangeal osteotomy. A dorsal-based wedge os-teotomy within proximal phalanx realigns the toe and re-duces the hallux equinus (7,48-53) Obvious overlapping (scissoring) of the ring finger over the little finger while making a fist. Resulting from a mal-union of a proximal phalanx fracture of the same finger. Old fracture evident at the neck of the proximal phalanx, ring finger. Lateral x-ray showing the osteotomy at the mid-shaft of the metacarpal The reasons for prosthetic replacement were HR (n = 11), rheumatoid arthritis (n = 4) and gout (n = 1). Additional procedures were performed in 3 cases (Akin phalangeal osteotomy in 2 cases and fifth metatarsal osteotomy in 1 case). The mean age at the operation was 56 years. The average follow-up period was 18 months (range of 12 to 36 months)

Osteotomy (Akin) of the proximal phalanx treatment, see above in Digital Surgery Use of suture and button construct as the primary method to repair a bunion deformity should be logged as 2.1.1 2.1.10 can only be used when two separate osteotomies and/or arthrodesis are performed on the same first ray to correct the bunion deformity The Akin osteotomy was described by OF Akin, in 1925, as a method of correcting hallux valgus deformity. The procedure resected the first metatarsal head medial exostosis and a portion of proximal phalangeal base. A cuneiform osteotomy was performed in the phalanx, with fracture and alignment of the toe and splintage in a rectus position. Fiftee The basi phalangeal osteotomy is not systematic but is proposed in case of severe hallux valgus, superior to 45° or in case of hallomegalia (gigantism of hallux).

The Moberg osteotomy is a dorsally-based closing wedge osteotomy of the proximal phalanx used to increase dorsiflexion in cases of hallux rigidus and hallux limitus. This actually changes available plantar flexion range of motion to dorsiflexion at the hallux metatarsophalangeal joint Weil osteotomy, sometimes referred to as distal metatarsal osteotomy, helps to relive the symptoms of metatarsal-phalangeal (MTP) joint synovitis, MTP subluxation, persistent metatarsalgia, or claw toe, by shortening the end of the metatarsal located at the base of the affected toe. By doing this, the toe has space to relax and allows it to. . Multiple fixation methods including suture, wire, screw, and staple fixation have been described. The aims of this study were to assess the intraoperative and postoperative complications and to evaluate short. In this paper, we present a simple but effective treatment for this problem when soft tissue correction fails. An osteotomy at the proximal phalangeal base of the lesser toes provides consistent correction with minimal added morbidity
In addition, because the hallux valgus interphalangeus deformity remained, a medial closing wedge osteotomy of the proximal phalanx, a modified Akin osteotomy, was performed resulting in a triple osteotomy for the hallux. Thereafter, the capsule was repaired while holding the hallux in correct alignment with proximal phalangeal osteotomy and distal soft-tissue realignment,9 but in our study this figure was only 19%, as the HVA could be corrected to <10º in 81% of patients. Better correction of hallus valgus is achieved when Scarf osteotomy is combined with proximal phalangeal osteotomy.9 osteotomy is a rotational and translation Scar The double osteotomy can be a combination of an osteotomy of the phalanx and the metatarsal (proximal or distal) or a proximal and distal metatarsal osteotomy. Know What's Included. Carefully review all the codes in this range before choosing your final code for bunion correction These include cheilectomy, proximal phalangeal osteotomy, drilling or autograft plantation for osteochondral lesions, arthrodesis, arthroplasty, Keller osteotomy, and metatarsal osteotomy . Among them, cheilectomy for grades 1 and 2 hallux rigidus and arthrodesis or arthroplasty for grades 3 and 4 have been generally accepted ( 1 ) The Acumed Hand Fracture System is designed to surgically treat various metacarpal and phalangeal fractures, fusions, and osteotomies and includes five solutions in one tray. Versatile screws, customizable plates, and dedicated instrumentation offer a comprehensive system to streamline the surgical experience

Before the osteotomy, we inserted a K-wire from the retrocondylar fossa of the proximal phalanx at an angle of approximately 20° against the ulnar side cortex of the proximal phalangeal head. This angle is appropriate for further advancement of the K-wire after opening of the osteotomy site; the K-wire tip could be advanced while maintaining. hallux phalanx osteotomy. In your scenario, you performed a hallux valgus (bunion) correction with a double osteotomy - one at the proximal first metatarsal and the second at the proximal hallux phalanx. The clarification of the double osteotomy by example in the 2002 CPT would, in my opinion Of the 25 digits, the following fingers were patients regardless of the middle phalangeal pathology involved: small finger (20 digits), index finger (4 dig- were treated with closing wedge osteotomy. There are its), and middle finger (1 digit). no clear guidelines in the literature about the degree of angulation that constitutes an indication. RESULT: Fifteen patients underwent intra-articular osteotomy. The average age was 32 (15-54) years. Fourteen of them were males. Fractures affect 9 middle phalangeal bases and 7 proximal phalangeal heads. Bony union was obtained in all patients by 6 to 10 weeks after surgery
Radiographs show a juxtaarticular ossification with subchondral cyst formation of the bone interface with the lateral phalangeal head and lateral angulation of the proximal phalanx articular surface. This was treated with excision of the mass and corrective closing wedge osteotomy of the proximal phalanx The Akin proximal phalangeal osteotomy is commonly used in conjunction with metatarsal osteotomies to treat hallux valgus. Multiple fixation methods including suture, wire, screw, and staple fixation have been described. The aims of this study were to assess the intraoperative and postoperative complications and to evaluate short-term. proximal phalanx osteotomy. Using C-arm for guidance, osteotomy of the proximal phalanx of the great toe was then performed using a small sagittal saw. This was closing wedge osteotomy. A Synthes 3.0 cancellous cannulated screw was used for fixation. Check with the C-arm at this time showed satisfactory position of the great toe with a.
osteotomy? Sometimes a physician may perform two separate osteotomy procedures on the calcaneus. The CPT code for calcaneal osteotomy, 28300, uses the word phalanx or phalanges, other than great toe, includes internal fixation, when performed, each) is assigned an MUE of three units and is assigned an MAI of. The Akin Procedure/Phalanx Osteotomy procedure (CPT code 28298) involves the removal of a medially-based bony wedge from the base of the proximal phalanx to correct its axis. The Lagroscino or Austin-Akin/Double Osteotomy procedure (CPT code 28299) is for a severe hallux valgus or a congruent joint. This is a combination of two osteotomy. The other example includes a distal osteotomy of the first metatarsal plus a base osteotomy of the attached proximal phalanx. AAOS states that this procedure includes: any combination of hallux valgus procedures (e.g. 28290-28298, 28485) , includes all osteotomies of the first metatarsal and first proximal phalanx and allows additional coding.

Wedge of bone is removed from base of proximal phalanx, leaving a small hinge of cortical bone on the lateral side reduced the abducted alignment of the hallux on the metatarsal The most common secondary phalangeal deformity in our experience results from a long oblique or spiral phalangeal diaphyseal fracture. Deformities may include shortening, rotation, angulation, and... Corrective Osteotomy—Phalangeal | SpringerLin The enclavement joint decompressive osteotomy of the first proximal phalanx can be an effective joint preserving procedure for hallux limitus/rigidus. Regnauld first described it in 1968.1,2 He demonstrated three different variations of the procedure. Effectively, the proximal portion of the first proximal phalanx is shortened
Cases operated on by PO + tenotomy showed a high rate of complications such as delayed union of the osteotomy (p < 0.01), hypertrophic callus (p < 0.01), phalangeal fracture at the osteotomy site. Phalangeal osteotomy appears to be most use-ful as an adjunctive procedure that can complement toe correction provided by a closing base wedge oste-otomy, distal metaphyseal osteotomy, or McBride. Medial Phalangeal Austin-Akin Osteotomy. A patient underwent an Austin-Akin osteotomy at our facility and we need assistance in the correct code assignment for this procedure. The Austin-Akin procedure has been defined as a double osteotomy and is usually performed on the proximal phalanx and distal metatarsal or double osteotomy of the metatarsal
Phalangeal fractures of the finger are typically due to direct blows to the hand. Most phalangeal fractures are treated with a splint, but unstable fractures may require surgical treatment to prevent complications such as stiffness and malunion. Phalangeal fractures may be seen with other more serious injuries such as laceration of the nail bed. Phalangeal Osteotomy Scarf Osteotomy Option 2 & 3: Pre-drilling & Countersinking Place the long or short cannulated drill bit (REF XFO073200/XFO051201) over the K-Wire according to the patient anatomy and drill until desired depth.

Malunion of phalangeal and metacarpal bones are often associated with impairment of hand function and pose a challenging task for treating surgeons in most cases. When applicable, corrective osteotomy is the treatment of choice, where the affected bone is cut to correct malalignment using chisels or saws. The use of these instruments is associated with several drawbacks especially in hand surgery A rotational deformity may require the addition of derotational phalangeal osteotomy. A metatarsal shortening osteotomy may have to be added for a dislocated MTP joint or MTP instability with synovitis. Metatarsal-shortening procedures are becoming more popular as adjuncts to hammertoe correction but have not yet been fully accepted. Choices. PURPOSE Rotational deformity of metacarpal and phalangeal fractures can jeopardize normal hand function and cause aesthetic problems for patients. We have found the Z-cut metacarpal osteotomy, initially described by Manktelow, to prove predictable and provide precise restoration of rotation and function.
