Abstract

In this study, we reported a case with collapse and subluxation of metatarsal-cuneiform joint, navicular-cuneiform joint with subluxed the right first metatarsophalangeal joint. The injured medial column was internally fixed with compression arthrodesis. The fusion site was firmed up with BonGold® Bone Sponge and Bone Putty. The prognosis of fused navicular-cuneiform joint and metatarsal-cuneiform joint were examined by X-ray shortly after surgical operation and followed up 2, 4, 6, 9 and 13 weeks after the surgical operation. The medial column was perfectly fused by compression arthrodesis. These results justified and favored the application of mineralized collagen as an excellent alternative to autograft in fusing the podarthral joints with internal fixation.

Keywords: medial column; metatarsophalangeal joint; navicular-cuneiform fusion; mineralized collagen
