Abstract

Metatarsalgia after excision of the metatarsal head for Freiberg's infarction remains an unresolved problem. We carried out an elongation osteotomy of the metatarsal shaft in two patients, who developed metatarsalgia after excision of the metatarsal head for Freiberg's infarction. At 4 years follow-up there was good symptomatic relief.
